The nomination period for the 2017 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge has ended and a record number of nominations were submitted for the 2017 Champions. These clinicians, practice teams, and health systems have prioritized hypertension control, helping their patients live free of heart attacks and strokes and adding to the Million Hearts® aim of at least a million fewer cardiovascular events by 2022.
The 2017 Champions will be announced in the fall.
More than 13 million adults are served by the 59 Hypertension Control Champions that Million Hearts® has recognized since 2012. These health care providers, practices, and systems used innovations in health information technology and electronic health records, patient communication, and health care team approaches to achieve blood pressure control for their patients. Together, these Champions represent a range of small and large, urban and rural, and private, federal, and tribal health practices and systems.See all the past Champions >
