Million Hearts™ brings together communities, health systems, nonprofit organizations, federal agencies, and private-sector partners from across the country to fight heart disease and stroke. San Diego’s Goal: To Prevent 1 Million Heart Attacks and Strokes by 2017: the Million Hearts Initiative

National Working Group on Evidence-Based Health Care

The National Working Group on Evidence-Based Healthcare: Keeping Science Relevant to the Individual. Ensuring appropriate evidence-based healthcare policy through education and advocacy.

The Right Care Initiative

Since 2007, The Right Care Initiative’s goal has been to apply scientific evidence and outcomes improvement strategies to reduce patient morbidity and mortality through a collaborative focus on achieving quality goals where performance metrics indicate that evidence-based, life-saving practices are not fully deployed. Data from the Integrated Health Care Association, the National Committee For Quality Assurance, the federal Agency for Health Care Quality and Research, the Commonwealth Foundation, CMS, and the Centers for Disease Control indicate that approximately 80,000 Californians die yearly from heart attacks, strokes and diabetic complications. Many of these deaths and associated disabilities and health care costs could be prevented with evidence-based patient management, clinical quality improvement and adoption of the latest medical knowledge. Our work is focused in these high-leverage areas of better management of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, with particular emphasis on control of blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar.
