Cardiac Quality Improvement Initiative

Alliant Quality is seeking all healthcare practitioners, medical practices, patients and families, community organizations, and Million Hearts® stakeholders both state and national, to join efforts to improve and measure progress on the ABCS of cardiovascular health:

Aspirin as appropriate
Blood pressure control
Cholesterol management
Smoking screening and cessation counseling

Heart attacks and strokes are the leading cause in death in our nation! It takes a village of communities to identify the barriers, share best practices, and make a nationwide impact. So, we need your help to do your part in Georgia!

CMS and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) created the Million Hearts® initiative to bring together communities, health systems, non-profit organizations, federal agencies, and private-sector partners from across the country to prevent a million heart attacks and strokes before 2017.
