Million Hearts®—Success in Blood Pressure Control
Keeping blood pressure under control helps prevent heart attacks and strokes and saves lives. The Hypertension Control Challenge recognizes clinicians and health systems that have excelled at controlling blood pressure. The Hypertension Control Champions use evidence-based strategies to achieve exemplary blood pressure control rates in their practices. As of 2017, CDC has recognized 83 clinicians, health care practices, and health systems as Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Champions for achieving blood pressure control rates of at least 70%.
