Million Hearts 2013 Hypertension Control Challenge

Million Hearts 2013 Hypertension Control Challenge. Enter at millionhearts.hhs.gov by September 9, 2013
The number of Americans who have high blood pressure has increased dramatically in the past decade, and nearly 1,000 people die each day in the United States as a result of high blood pressure-related illnesses. 

We also know that many health care practices and systems have succeeded in working with their patients to get blood pressure under control. In 2012, Million Hearts® recognized Kaiser Permanente Colorado and Ellsworth Medical Clinic in Wisconsin as Hypertension Control Champions for their success in achieving greater than 80 percent control among their patient populations with high blood pressure.

This year, Million Hearts wants to recognize even more Hypertension Control Champions. Clinicians, practices, and health systems that provide primary care and have achieved hypertension control rates greater than 70 percent are eligible to enter.

Submit your nomination or encourage high-performing, small and large practices to enter the 2013 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge: www.millionhearts.hhs.gov. The Challenge is open August 9 through September 9, 2013.

Together, we can achieve a nationwide blood pressure control rate of 70 percent or better—leading to 10 million more people in the United States living with a healthy blood pressure level.

Colorado participates in the Million Hearts Initiative, an effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over five years. You can participate too. Be one in a million - make your commitment and pledge today.
