In observance of February as American Heart Month, AHRQ has released a new video that highlights EvidenceNOW: Advancing Heart Health in Primary Care, an Agency initiative that aims to support primary care practices in using the latest evidence to improve patients’ heart health. The video describes how seven regional cooperatives covering 12 states, as well as a national evaluation team, are working together to create a blueprint for how all of America’s primary care practices can improve patient care. EvidenceNOW aligns with the Department of Health and Human Services’ Million Hearts® initiative, focusing on the adoption of the ABCs of cardiovascular disease prevention: Aspirin use by high-risk individuals, Blood pressure control, Cholesterol management, and Smoking cessation.
