Chronic Disease Prevention and Self-care

Annually, heart disease costs approximately $207 billion in healthcare expenses and lost productivity. And nearly one-third of people aged 65 years and older have diabetes.


Clinicians in your community struggle to help patients prevent and manage chronic conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and chronic kidney disease. But how do you sustain high-quality, committed patient care while trying to integrate the latest evidence-based care methods into your practices? While navigating complex regulatory and administrative requirements?

  • Guided evidence-based, step-by-step programs that help clinicians translate research into practice from trusted sources like Million Hearts®, Target:BP™ and the National Kidney Foundation.
  • Dedicated information exchanges with peers with similar goals and challenges.

  • Connections with other healthcare entities in your area to help spread and reinforce quality improvement efforts.
