Healthy Hearts Northwest: Improving Practice Together

The MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation
Applications accepted on an ongoing basis



Healthy Hearts Northwest: Improving Practice Together will bring together 320 small-to-medium-sized primary care practices in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho to participate in a 15-month learning collaborative.

Each practice will receive technical assistance to:

  • Build quality improvement (QI) capacity through the use of health information technology and data reporting
  • Disseminate and support the adoption of patient-centered outcomes research findings relevant to aspirin use, blood pressure and cholesterol control, and smoking cessation (ABCS) quality measures
  • Conduct a rigorous evaluation of strategies that enhance the effectiveness of external practice support
  • Assess the sustainability of changes made in QI capacity and ABCS improvements and develop a model of scale-up and spread of practice support to build QI capacity

It is expected that the project will have significant participation by rural practices.
