Five Minutes in Healthcare is where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders.

Yesterday I was joined by Devon Bream, MPH, FACHE, president and GM for Invasive Cardiology at GE HealthCare, for an insightful conversation about atrial fibrillation (Afib) and the innovations that are bringing better outcomes to larger patient populations. Did you know that almost 2.5 million patients in the U.S. have Afib, but only about 15% receive treatment?

We talk about how processing heart signals from Prucka amplifiers through the CardioLab electrophysiology recording system simplifies care and enables better outcomes.

We also look at the possibility of performing many of these procedures in ambulatory surgery or outpatient facilities, which may resolve some of the big picture challenges in getting the best care possible to more patients who need it.

During our chat, Devon emphasized GE HealthCare's approach to safe and secure IT integration in the cath and electrophysiology labs. It's an important topic, and for more on that, I encourage you to read an in-depth Q&A we recently conducted with Vivek Sachdev, director of engineering for Invasive Cardiology at GE HealthCare.


We hope you enjoy the conversation. Please tell us what you think, and let us know who you would like to see interviewed next.
