Evaluating Training Options for your Electrophysiology Lab

Electrophysiology (EP) is a rapidly growing segment within the healthcare industry. According to the CDC, anywhere from 2.7 to 6.1 million people in the U.S. are affected by atrial fibrillation and that number is expected to grow to 12 million by 2050. For hospitals this provides an opportunity to serve more patients. However, there is a shortage of lab professionals.  In a fast-paced environment full of technology changes many get frustrated with the lack of education opportunities and leave the field. This leads to high turnover and an influx of new employees that can take its toll on EP lab performance.

A greater emphasis on training and education may help as it enhances the expertise of staff to better meet patient needs and improves retention.  To help hospitals explore training options, below is a list of key considerations.  You can also attend our upcoming FREE webinar to learn more, too.

With a passion for continuous improvement and delivering high-quality care, hospital leaders at Duke University Heart Hospital decided to put more resources behind this important service area and place a greater focus on enhancing the expertise of their electrophysiology (EP) staff.

In January 2015, Duke collaborated with us to develop an EP training program. Using our combined strengths, we developed a comprehensive EP curriculum designed to prepare allied professionals for the Registered Cardiac Electrophysiology Specialist (RCES) exam.  Leveraging mobile and web technologies, the training provided convenient continuing education tools for EP lab workers and addressed the problems facing many EP labs today.
