Coming soon: Our Healthy Hearts Northwest Story Series

Healthy Hearts Northwest is dedicated to disseminating what our team has learned throughout our three years working to improve cardiovascular risk factors in primary care clinics across Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Our skilled, personable practice coaches have many tales to tell their colleagues about what has, and has not, helped real-world primary care practices bring better care to their patients.

Storytelling is a human tradition that we believe can serve as a uniquely effective bridge between theory and reality. Stories help us make sense of the world around us. They can inspire, teach, and warn. The memories that our practice coaches share illustrate what they saw and who they met in small primary care clinics across the northwest in 2015-2018.

We hope that the personal perspectives of our Healthy Hearts NW improvement process narratives may be useful to others working in the field of practice coaching.
