We’re partnering with Kaiser Permanente in Northern California to support community health organizations in reducing heart attacks and strokes in high-risk patient populations. The program is Kaiser Permanente’s award-winning Preventing Heart Attacks and Strokes Everyday (PHASE), an evidence-based approach that first helped Kaiser reduce heart disease morbidity by 60 percent among its members.
Since 2015, we have brought our expertise in building vibrant learning communities, leveraging experts, and sparking innovative thinking among PHASE participants in Northern California.
Our work on the 2020-2021 PHASE initiative specifically focuses on three goals:
- Manage chronic conditions of high-risk populations to decrease their risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and/or cardiovascular events.
- Improve ability to screen for key CVD risk factors as well as the ability to follow-up with patients who have those risk factors.
- Advance health equity by achieving high performance for all populations on measures impacting cardiovascular health.
We are proud to play an important role in helping safety net organizations adapt PHASE and profoundly impact the suffering and costs associated with diabetes and chronic heart disease.
