Commonwealth Ballroom, The Westin Boston Waterfront

Educational Support by Cardiva Medical

Course Organizer: MediaSphere Medical

Ablation procedures have advanced considerably in recent years, but there has been little change in post-procedure workflow, ambulation or length of stay. AMBULATE IMPACT is a recently completed study that examines today’s workflow following ablation procedures – with a focus on where opportunities exist to improve the patient experience as well as hospital economics. In the study, representative workflows are pro¬filed and national cost data is examined. A distinguished panel of physicians, led by Dr. Andrea Natale, will present and lead a discussion on the study ¬findings as well as experience from their own institutions. The results of the AMBULATE IMPACT study are being presented here for the first time.

Grand Ballroom CD, The Westin Boston Waterfront

Course Organizer: MediaSphere Medical, LLC
Sponsored by Biosense Webster

Currently 3.1 Million patients in the U.S. are diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation (AF), with less than 10% under-going catheter ablation. Meanwhile, AF costs the U.S healthcare system an estimated $6 Billion annually.

Progressive centers around the nation are now establishing programs to optimize arrhythmia care across the continuum of patient management, increase EP lab efficiencies, and establish a standardized workflow to achieve reproducible and efficient ablation procedures while minimizing radiation exposure. This two-part evening program of didactic lectures and case studies led by an experienced faculty will address these critical topics.
