Golden clinic recognized for hypertension control

New West Physicians in Golden is one of 24 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Champions recognized in 2017. Together, these dedicated professionals cared for more than 1.2 million adults and achieved blood pressure control for, on average, more than 70% of their patients. These remarkable results, combined with those of the 59 Champions recognized since 2012, will help protect millions from heart disease and stroke, two leading causes of death in America.

The majority of our Million Hearts Champions serve underserved populations.This year’s Champions are collaborating with state and local health departments and participating in EvidenceNOW, CMS’ Quality Improvement Networks, Medicare Shared Savings Program, Pioneer ACOs, or the Million Hearts® Cardiovascular Disease Risk Reduction Model.

Their stories of success reveal the power of accessible and actionable data, team-care, and aligned incentives, all brought to bear on the practice’s high priority: hypertension control for all. Saving lives through better blood pressure control has been a longstanding priority for Million Hearts®. By recognizing the Champions’ excellence and sharing their lessons learned, we aim to help other health care professionals achieve the same success in communities nationwide.

We encourage you to visit the Million Hearts® website and share these evidence-based tools and resources with your colleagues and partners to improve blood pressure control.
