Optimizing Care

For people with and at risk for cardiovascular disease, receiving optimal care via preventative services, medications, and acquired skills is necessary for reducing the likelihood of having a heart attack or stroke. Million Hearts® 2027 specifically focuses on achieving a 20% improvement on the ABCS of cardiovascular disease prevention, though we will continue to recognize champions who are able to achieve ≥ 80% performance.  Cardiac rehabilitation is an evidence-based way to attend to the ABCS for people with qualifying events.
