Million Hearts in Colorado: Webinar: Exploring the Use of Electronic Health Records to Support Tobacco Cessation and Million Hearts

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States. The use of electronic health records can play an important role in improving health by supporting tobacco cessation efforts.

This webinar, hosted by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) will explore and identify opportunities for using electronic health records (EHRs) to improve two of the ABCS of Million Hearts: smoking cessation efforts and improving blood pressure control. Hosts will provide an overview and national perspective of EHR use, state and local examples, and available resources to support these efforts.

The intended audience for this webinar includes state health agencies, local health agencies and community based clinics.

Exploring the Use of Electronic Health Records to Support Tobacco Cessation and Million Hearts, Monday, April 13, 2015 from -2:30 PM ET 


A recording of the webinar and slides will be made available on the ASTHO and NACCHO website within 2 weeks of the webinar. Visit ASTHO's Tobacco website to read more about tobacco regulations, view state case studies, and access more tobacco resources.

High blood pressure management is a key strategy of the  Million Hearts Initiative, an effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017.  Colorado participates in this initiative and you can too. Be one in a million - make your commitment and pledge today.
