ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY ADVANCES

Patient safety and outcomes during treatment for arrhythmia could be improved by new clinical technologies and data-sharing facilities, designed to assist electrophysiology (EP) teams, according to a recent presentation at the Heart Rhythm Society’s 32nd annual scientific sessions.

The ‘Networked EP Lab’ platform, which integrates real-time data from electrograms, 3D mapping and imaging systems with patient health records, presenting the information on one centralised display, was the result of an industry collaboration between Royal Philips Electronics and the Heart Rhythm Society.

“The Networked EP Lab will provide attendees with an opportunity to see what state-of-the-art technology looks like, learn best practices, share ideas and walk away with information to streamline their efforts,” said the Heart Rhythm Society’s Scientific Sessions Abstract Chair, Dr Hugh Calkins.

“Having all the components in the Networked EP Lab communicate with each other in combination with the most advanced technology will significantly impact education, teaching and patient care, ultimately improving both patient safety and outcomes of treatment.

The Networked EP Lab also featured presentations from experts in the field of electrophysiology on the clinical benefits of integrated technologies in EP labs, and of sharing patient data through common electronic healthcare infrastructures.
