The Initiative

Call for Nominations: 2015 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge!

High blood pressure is out of control for too many Americans. The latest data show that nearly 1 in 3 American adults—approximately 70 million—has high blood pressure, and only about half have it safely controlled.

We know that many practices and systems have succeeded in working with their patients to get blood pressure under control. Over 12 million adults are served by the 41 Hypertension Control Champions recognized to date.

This year, we want to recognize even more Hypertension Control Champions. Clinicians, practices, and health systems that provide continuing care and have achieved hypertension control rates greater than 70% are eligible to enter.

Please help us spread the word by submitting your nomination or encouraging high-performing small and large practices to enter the 2015 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge:

The Challenge is open August 18 through October 31, 2015.
