Interventional therapies for arrhythmia have progressed rapidly in the past few decades. There is a rapid growing trend for electrophysiologic procedure and implantation of cardiac implantable electronic devices. The amount is expected to be growing fast in the coming years because of increasing awareness. However, significant inequalities exist in healthcare in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia.
Unfortunately at the present time, the number of cardiologist in Indonesia is limited. Approximately 500 cardiologist serving a population of 250 million, among them only a limited member of cardiac electrophysiologists.
The Indonesian Heart Rhythm society was established in april 2013 during the 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting of Indonesian Heart Association (ASMIHA) in Jakarta, as a working group for electrophysiology and pacing of the Indonesian Heart Association.
The idea was to promote scientifically, technological, and clinical development for interventional therapies of cardiac arrhytmia but also improve healthcare for patients.
Indonesian Heart Rhythm Society (InaHRS) has a commitment to improve health of heart rhythm disorder in Indonesia.
