Quality Improvement

The HRS Quality Improvement program aims to create and foster a culture of QI within the heart rhythm community.

HRS Optimizing OutcomesThe vision of HRS is to end death and suffering due to heart rhythm disorders. HRS quality improvement (QI) efforts support that vision through our Optimize Outcomes initiatives that…

  • are led by heart rhythm specialists committed to improved care and outcomes
  • engage the global heart rhythm community to address gaps and disparities throughout the world
  • leverage the diversity, strength and unity of the HRS membership
  • foster collaboration, communication and care coordination between all clinicians that treat heart rhythm patients
  • concentrate on systems-based improvements, with the potential to result in the largest impact
  • evolve with the most recent science and knowledge
  • focus on the patient
