Submit your entry for the 2019 Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge
The Million Hearts® Hypertension Control Challenge is a competition to identify clinicians, practices and health systems that have demonstrated exceptional achievements in working with their patients to control hypertension. This year, we will be recognizing those who achieved at least 80% blood pressure control (blood pressure reading <140 mmHg/<90 mmHg) among their hypertensive population aged 18 to 85.
The Challenge is open to public and private clinicians, medical practices, and health systems located in the United States. Strategies used by Champions that support hypertension control may be written into a success story and posted on this website.
To date, CDC has recognized 101 Hypertension Control Champions.
Please note; when you access the application, you will be asked to register and create an account to save your progress if you plan to complete the application form over more than one session.
The Campaign asks that you provide very specific information about the applicant’s practice, patient population and the tools and techniques used to treat hypertension. You can download and print a copy of the application form to help gather the information you will need to successfully complete and submit the application form.
The deadline to submit an application is Monday, April 1, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT
February is Heart Health Month; an excellent time to take the time to give credit to those individuals [clinicians, practices and health systems] that have demonstrated exceptional achievements in working to control hypertension among their patients.
