Its mission is to improve the care of patients by promoting research, education, and optimal health care policies and standards. HRS represents the allied specialties of cardiac pacing and cardiac electrophysiology in North America and plays an important role not only in education but also as an intermediary between government regulatory agencies and members of the profession. HRS created the Patient and Public Information Center to provide accurate, clear, and understandable information about cardiac arrhythmia disorders. Designed to educate patients and the public, the Center aims to achieve further understanding of heart rhythm problems.
