Cardialysis was incepted in 1983 by cardiologists from the Thorax center of the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands; the medical center that still plays a prominent role in the expanding international faculty that surrounds Cardialysis today. From a small Holter data analysis unit in the early eighties, Cardialysis has developed into an internationally recognized independent clinical research organization, collaborating with major scientific, medical device and pharmaceutical partners from around the world. Nowadays, Cardialysis has a long, diversified track record and is one of the leading specialized global organizations for drug and medical device development in the field of cardiology.
