Jose Osorio, DMD Conference Speaker

Jose Osorio
AFib Clinic

Dr. Osorio is a native of Brazil where he earned his medical degree. He completed training at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Cardiovascular Diseases and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. He is board-certified in Cardiovascular Disease and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.

Dr Osorio is the market director of Cardiac Electrophysiology for HCA Florida Miami. He specializes in the treatment of heart rhythm disorders, such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. He also leads HCA Florida Mercy and has served as the principal investigator in dozens of clinical trials investigating novel treatment options for atrial fibrillation.

Dr. Osorio is internationally recognized for his commitment and contribution to quality and practice improvement within the field of electrophysiology. His passion for improving patient care has been recognized by his professional organization, the Heart Rhythm Society, which designed educational programs to highlight the model built at Grandview Medical Center. Dr. Osorio has long championed the team-based approach to continuous quality improvement with a focus on safety, efficiency, and improved outcomes for atrial fibrillation ablation. Over the past 8 years, he has hosted over 500 clinicians in his lab (in-person and virtually) to help them improve their efficiency and outcomes.

Dr Osorio is the President and founder of Heart Rhythm Clinical and Research Solutions, LLC and 3PH Alliance. In this role, he leads a national learning collaborative focused on improving outcomes collection and quality improvement in participating centers.
