With the evolution in digital medicine to identify and monitor cardiac electrophysiological (EP) conditions, increased access to cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs), and reimbursements for non-face-to-face care, remote patient monitoring (RPM) is becoming a key part of the EP service line. RPM of cardiac electrophysiological conditions including the use of CIEDs has improved the quality of care and high patient satisfaction and proved to be cost-effective. The focus of this review is

RPM has progressed to use implantable devices and wearable technologies like sensors embedded in smartphones and apps. American College of Cardiology recently launched a digital transformation network to support digital navigation and RPM across different cardiovascular diseases. The information presented here can inform healthcare providers of the most widely implemented and effective forms of RPM for patients with chronic EP conditions.
