Select Which Registration Is Right For You
Technology and medicine are colliding with an explosion of innovations in monitoring, diagnosis, and disease management. As digital health technologies become more popular and readily available to consumers, clinicians are presented with new opportunities and challenges.
Digital Health Summit* attendees will hear from the experts and pioneers who are leading the way in this digital health revolution. Key opinion leaders will share guidance and clarity regarding the secure exchange of data and the navigation of patient-generated data from consumer tech. Patients will weigh in with their perspectives, while tech giants discuss how innovations in digital health are creating a new paradigm in patient diagnosis, treatment, and disease management. Their partnerships with healthcare providers will also be emphasized.
*Digital Health Summit is not eligible for CME credit or MOC points.
Digital health technologies in relation to the management of our patients with arrhythmia disorders are rapidly advancing. Consumers and patients now have easy access to biometric data, including the ability to detect abnormal heart rhythms like AFib. Partnerships between healthcare providers and the companies manufacturing today’s digital health tech is essential to ensure early and accurate diagnosis and treatment of patients with chronic arrhythmias.
The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) is the largest global professional society representing expert healthcare providers that focus specifically on treating patients with heart rhythm disorders, including AFib. Our community applies more biosensors in and on the human body than any other clinical specialty. HRS includes members across the care team and in more than 70 countries.
Over 40 million patients globally suffer from AFib, and the number affected is expected to double by 2050. HRS is uniquely qualified to convene, educate, and mobilize all stakeholders with the shared mission to improve outcomes for chronic arrhythmia patients. HRS has leveraged its strong relationships with providers, patients, government agencies, drug and device manufacturers, and technology companies to assemble a dynamic Summit faculty who are ready to lead these critical discussions.
If you are reading this, chances are you, too, are a critical stakeholder in HRS's shared mission. The Digital Health Summit needs your voice, ideas, and expertise to prepare the provider and patient community for the inevitable changes to come that will impact how diagnosis occurs and healthcare is delivered. The Summit provides you with the opportunity to bring awareness of your perspectives and/or technologies to more than 45,000 global healthcare professionals.
