The Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Champions are clinicians, practices, and health systems that have successfully completed the Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge. The Challenge is an opportunity for clinicians, practices, and health systems to demonstrate excellence in hypertension control. Hypertension Control Champions must reach 80% control rates among their hypertensive patients. Learn more about the Challenge rules.

To achieve success, many of the Hypertension Control Champions use innovations in:

  • Health information technology and electronic health records
  • Patient communication and education
  • Team care models

The Champions’ success stories provide valuable lessons for other practices and systems that want to help patients achieve blood pressure control and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease.
