U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs


The Veterans Health Administration (VHA), one of three Department of Veterans Affairs administrations, is responsible for providing a full continuum of comprehensive care that includes primary care, specialized care, and related medical and social support services to approximately 8.3 million Veterans each year. VHA is the United States' largest integrated health care system, with more than 1,400 sites of care in all 50 states, several U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.

VHA has five goals that correspond with the aim of Million Hearts™, including:

  1. Continue our communication of Million Hearts™ goals to our front-line providers and patients;
  2. Periodically demonstrate VA's performance of the ABCS goals and share best practices around its achievement;
  3. Promote effective management of the ABCS goals through our patient aligned care teams (PACTs);
  4. Partner with our clinical research division (QUERI) to promote research in the achievement of the ABCS goals, opportunities for improvement, and implementation of effective interventions;
  5. Identify and partner with community efforts to promote and improve smoking cessation and overall heart health.
