HEALTHY HEARTS NORTHWEST
Healthy Hearts Northwest is a three-year project for primary care practices in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho that aims to help improve the cardiovascular health of patients by expanding on existing quality improvement capacity within small- to medium-size clinics. While recruitment into our project is now closed, practices are participating nationwide as part of the AHRQ EvidenceNOW initiative.
