CV podcast: Fostering continued innovation in cardiology

Partnering for improved patient care 

Throughout its more than 100-year history, the electrocardiogram (ECG) has remained one of the most important diagnostic tests in modern medicine. Continuing to maximize the ECG’s potential for improved patient care requires that medical professionals of different backgrounds — from providers to engineers — come together to work toward this common goal.

In this episode of Mayo Clinic’s “Cardiovascular CME” podcast, Paul Friedman, M.D., chair of Mayo Clinic’s Department of Cardiology in Rochester, Minnesota, discusses how he and others have fostered an environment of continued ECG innovation at Mayo Clinic, and how you can do the same at your institution.

Discussion topics include:

  • Identifying opportunities to innovate in this space.
  • Are ECG innovations scalable?
  • Overcoming the challenges of recruiting engineers to a medical center.
