Healthy Hearts in the Heartland

bb_partners2_smallerHealthy Hearts in the Heartland (H3) is a federally funded research program working with small practice clinics in the Midwest to implement and evaluate quality improvement strategies for cardiovascular care. H3 seeks to identify the best practices, tools and supports needed for small clinic settings to improve heart health of their patients. This type of work is becoming common in large health systems; your clinic has the opportunity to pioneer how this quality improvement work can be done effectively here in the Midwest.

 



H3 is part of the Agency for Research and Quality's EvidenceNOW grant initiative.

Principal Investigator: Abel Kho, MD, internist, co-executive director of Chicago Health IT Regional Extention Center (CHITREC) and director of the Center for Health Information Partnerships (CHiP), which is part of Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine Institute for Public Health and Medicine.
