   95% CI 0.22-0.85
Clark et al. [10] Telemonitoring – 4 studies 20% reduction in all-cause mortality (RR 0.80, 95% CI: 0.69 to 0.92; 14 studies)
  Structured telephone support – 9 studies Decrease in all-cause mortality more pronounced with telemonitoring (RR 0.62, 95% CI: 0.45 to 0.85; 4 studies) than with structured telephone support (RR 0.85, 95% CI: 0.72 to 1.01; 9 studies)
  Telemonitoring and structured telephone support – 1 study  
Giamouzis et al. [22] Telemonitoring Statistically significant reduced all-cause mortality (3 studies).
Inglis et al. [8] Telemonitoring (transfer of daily data) – 11 studies Telemonitoring reduced all-cause mortality (RR 0.66, 95% CI: 0.54–0.81; 11 studies)
