H3 Practice Named a 2017 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Champion
Healthy Hearts in the Heartland (H3) congratulates the primary care practices recognized as 2017 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Champions. Among the 24 honorees is Plymouth Family Physicians (Plymouth, WI), a practice participating in H3.
Each of the Champions – primary care practices, individual clinicians, and health systems – is being recognized for achieving blood pressure control for at least 70% of its patients through innovations in health information technology and electronic health records, patient communication, and health care team approaches.
H3, a CHiP research project, is part of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s EvidenceNOW initiative to advance heart health in primary care. Through EvidenceNOW, H3 is helping small- and medium-sized primary care practices use evidence to control patients’ blood pressure and address other risk factors to improve heart health.
