Did you know that heart disease kills 600,000 people and stroke kills an additional 130,000 people in the United States each year? While these numbers are startling, they represent a key opportunity for home health providers to help save lives, and the Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) National Campaign is eager to support you.

HHQI’s new cardiovascular health improvement effort supports the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Million Hearts® initiative. By developing new cardiovascular-focused Best Practice Intervention Packages (BPIPs) and data reports, HHQI is committed to helping the home health community improve preventive care and, subsequently, support the Million Hearts® goal of preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes in the United States by 2017.

Download the first of two Cardiovascular Health BPIPs today for evidence-based tools, resources and research on aspirin therapy and blood pressure control and sign up for the Home Health Cardiovascular Data Registry to measure your progress. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the HHQI National Campaign at hhqi@wvmi.org.
