This free online training, titled Mastering Hypertension to Achieve Heart Health,” will review the latest Million Hearts® priorities and resources, and focus on the high impact practice-level changes that can lead to improved blood pressure for patients. Million Hearts® is an initiative co-led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The webinar also will focus on strategies to improve medication adherence, partnerships between patients and their providers, and the role that blood pressure self-monitoring plays in effective care and the patient experience.

Attendees will hear from Judy Hannan, CDC and Million Hearts®; Margaret Meador, National Association of Community Health Centers; and Lawrence Garber, MD, Reliant Medical Group, who is a previous Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Champion.

The August LAN session topic aligns with the CMS Quality Strategy goal to promote effective prevention and treatment of chronic disease. It is open to all Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organizations (QIN-QIOs), providers, partners and beneficiaries.
