Abstract

Evidence-based medicine has provided the foundation for refinement of the guideline development process and the emergence of the disciplines of measuring quality, performance, and outcomes. With implementation of electronic medical records as part of healthcare reform, multiple aspects of these disciplines will be incorporated into clinical cardiac electrophysiology. Performance measures and quality metrics will assume an influential role in the management of patients with heart rhythm disturbances in the near future.
