New for Heart Rhythm 2011, the Networked EP Lab will prepare electrophysiologists for the future of health information technology (HIT). Visitors will discover new processes and technologies to integrate into the EP Lab to optimize patient safety, outcomes and improve procedural management and outcomes.

The Heart Rhythm Society, in collaboration with the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) initiative, is preparing electrophysiologists for the future of health information technology (HIT) and developing the roadmap to interoperability between cardiac rhythm management (CRM) devices, EP lab equipment, electronic health records and national registries.

A core element of Heart Rhythm 2011's Networked EP Lab will be a central platform that links several components into a functional capacity that utilizes space and minimizes cable line interference. Products such as ablators, intracardiac echo, data acquisition systems, 3D mapping systems and more will be on display.

The Networked EP Lab also will feature presentations from leading experts on models to address the standards for sharing patient data and common electronic health care infrastructures. Each presentation is 25 minutes, including a Q &A session.
