MedCity News reports on the takeaways from the Heart Rhythm Society’s annual conference noting the increased importance of reprocessing to the electrophysioloigsts.

 Thousands of clinicians, scientists, researchers and innovators from around the world gathered together for this 5-day event at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. In the past, many nurses and technicians from EP Labs across the country would attend, but this conference is increasingly dominated by electrophysiologists. Although financial pressure undoubtedly played a role in this shift in attendance, given the important clinical knowledge and best practices shared between private organizations, leading hospitals, manufacturers and non-profit organizations, I think we can expect that physicians will continue to find value in this event year after year. Cost cutting measures aside, one of the best ways to foster innovation is to bring the great clinical minds of our generation together to share real-world practices and success.
