It is increasingly difficult to keep the traditional in-office protocol device's control: we must think of a different organization dedicated to the activity of remote control and monitoring (RC/RM) of devices and patients. A CIED team structured with nurses, technicians and physicians should be organized inside the hospital, with the aim of CIED patients’ managing and of creating a network between the various departments. Small hospitals may not be able to manage independently the CIEDs RC/RM and it is possible to hypothesize the creation of a collaborative network between neighbouring structures. This activity must combine the use of technology with the ability to take care of patients and to maintain adequate and meaningful relationships. © 2020 Italian Federation of Cardiology - I.F.C.
