Cardiac Health Improvement

Cardiac Health Disparities LAN

Over the past three years, Alliant Quality has assisted and participated in the Million Hearts® campaign by recruiting various health care professionals, medical organizations, state organizations and others to join in the discussion, develop and share training and education to primarily focus on blood pressure control and tobacco cessation screen and counseling.

We are still inviting providers to join us and, perhaps, use cardiac health improvement as a quality improvement activity. Simply complete our participation agreement to be added to our list of those interested in education, training, sharing and assistance in improving cardiovascular health for patients.
