The Heart Rhythm Society's mission is to improve the care of patients by promoting research, education and optimal health care policies and standards. To support this mission and the vision to end death and suffering due to heart rhythm disorders, the Society advocates for policies that support access to heart rhythm care.
Since 2010, HRS has defended the interests of electrophysiologists' on payment changes policies through its partnership with the American Medical Association. That partnership relies on our participation in the AMA's House of Delegates.
Authored and endorsed clinical documents provide three main components vital to advancements in the heart rhythm field: analysis, discussion of current issues, and suggestions for clinical application.
HRS manages a variety of aspects relating to the development or revision of CPT codes; recommended relative values and reimbursement rates; coverage for new technologies and revising coverage policies for existing services and procedures.
The Heart Rhythm Society, the Pediatric & Congenital Electrophysiology Society (PACES), and the Society of Invasive Cardiovascular Professionals (SICP) partnered with the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) to develop the Cardiac Electrophysiology Accreditation.
