Million Hearts 2022: Small Steps Are Needed for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention

Speaker: Talyah Sands, MPH
Director of Health Improvement, Association of State and Territorial Health Officers

Since 2013, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, has supported state and territorial health agencies in integrating efforts with healthcare, local, and community partners to control blood pressure. What began as the Million Hearts State Learning Collaborative evolved to the Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Learning Collaborative, expanding to focus on topics such as engaging family members in care, public and private payers, and tribal and state partnerships. This session will describe strategies that jurisdictions applied to improve hypertension identification, control, and prevention in collaboration with multi-sector partners. It will also highlight the quality improvement process deployed to create systems changes and the resources that state and local partners can use to replicate successes from learning collaborative jurisdictions.

The CDC Vital Signs monthly report was launched in 2010. It includes an early release of data, a graphic fact sheet and website, a media release, and social media tools. Vital Signs reports cover an important health threat and what can be done to drive down the disease. The focus of this month’s Vital Signs is on Million Hearts. This session will describe the data released in the Vital Signs report, including state-level data, as well as provide the resources states and partners can use when using this data to drive action.

Bo Nemelka will address the intersection of public health and the emerging value-based health care economy. Bo will specifically focus on insurance and provider reform, highlighting how different types of insurance and accountable care arrangements can move public health initiatives further along to sustainable coverage. Attending this keynote will provide an organized view into how coverage can be approached and strategized around from a policy and payment perspective.

Speaker: Marci Nielsen, MPH, PhD

Participants will learn: (1) how a patient-centered primary care medical home model incorporates both primary care and population health; (2) how a model of collaboration based on shared interests can promote larger public policy goals to improve health; and (3) how the move toward value based payments can move population health.

Self-Measured Blood Pressure (SMBP) is the regular use of a blood pressure measurement device by patients outside the clinic setting. SMBP is proven to not only enhance self-participation in disease management, but to also improve blood pressure outcomes for hypertensive patients. As a part of the Million Hearts initiative, ASTHO in partnership with CDC, launched its SMBP State Learning Collaborative in 2016, with the goal of leveraging areas of ASTHO’s systems change approach, including policy, evidence-based programs, data, and clinical community linkages to increase the use of SMBP among those with hypertension. Since people who smoke, including those who smoke less than five cigarettes a day, are at greater risk for heart disease and stroke, some jurisdictions in the complementary ASTHO/CDC Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Learning Collaborative incorporated strategies to include tobacco cessation into hypertension care. This workshop will focus on how to integrate SMBP and tobacco cessation into systems changes for hypertension self-management. The session will bring together participants to discuss collaborative efforts and actions for high blood pressure prevention and management.

Bo Nemelka will lead a discussion around the key influencers of sustainable coverage for public health programs in the private sector. The breakout will address a variety of strategies to implement as well as take into consideration the Nebraska landscape (specific Nebraska data will be shared). Attending this breakout will provide a unique insight into how to work with private sector stakeholders in ways only now available given the emerging value-based health care economy.

New Medicare reimbursement for chronic care management (CCM) provides new funding for infrastructure needed to succeed under value-based payments.  Research shows CCM improves outcomes and dramatically reduces the total cost of care for Medicare beneficiaries.  Most providers, however, lack the resources to stand up successful CCM programs.  This session will explain the Medicare rules for billing CCM and describe how local health departments can partner with community providers to deliver these services.

This session will describe how to accelerate team-based care approaches using the pharmacists’ patient care process and collaborative practice agreements to manage high blood pressure. We’ll discuss action steps that public health professionals and pharmacy partners can take to implement team-based approaches to care.
