Heart Rhythm Society Offers Updates on the Latest EP Technology

The Heart Rhythm Society’s 36th Annual Scientific Sessions, May 13-16, 2015 in Boston, will offer the latest clinical data and new technology updates in electrophysiology (EP). These include new information on leadless pacing, the impact of wireless remote device monitoring, the latest advances in atrial fibrillation management and shockless ICD implant evaluations.

One of the key technology trends I have seen in healthcare in the past year is the mass proliferation of consumer-grade wearable health monitoring devices and their integration with smartphone technology. These devices and their expected impact on healthcare and physician patient engagement were among the hottest topics at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) meetings earlier this year. HRS also has sessions that will discuss this evolution in patient involvement in their own care, including a “body computing” display at the EPicenter, Booth 535 on the expo floor. This area will show how digital health is impacting medicine with the convergence of sophisticated diagnostic sensors, innovative mobile applications and a powerful technology infrastructure.

HRS 2015 includes more than 250 educational sections and 130 exhibitors. HRS plans to highlight some of the key educational sessions with video posted online within 24 hours of the sessions. This offers a unique opportunity for medical professionals who are unable to attend the meeting, or those with scheduling conflicts, to view a selection of the state-of-the-art presentations. View the list of webcast presentations.

Below are some key technologies that will be discussed in sessions and on the expo floor.
