In 1979, four electrophysiologists recognized the need for a society dedicated to the field cardiac pacing and electrophysiology. The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) is a leading resource on cardiac pacing and electrophysiology. This specialty organization represents medical, allied health, and science professionals from more than 70 countries who specialize in cardiac rhythm disorders. HRS delivers programs and services to its membership based on its current Strategic Plan under the guidance of a Board of Trustees.
Their mission is to improve the care of patients by advancing research, education and optimal health care policies and standards.
