The Million Hearts® Cholesterol Management Change Package (CMCP) was developed in partnership with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) and the American Medical Association (AMA). This change package provides clinicians in outpatient settings tools and resources for improving cholesterol management.CMCP change package

The cholesterol management change package (CMCP) presents a listing of evidence-based process improvements that outpatient clinical settings can implement as they seek optimal cholesterol management. It is composed of change concepts, change ideas and evidence or practice-based tools and resources.

  • Change concepts are general motions that are useful in the development of more specific ideas or changes that lead to improvement
  • Change ideas are specific actionable ideas for changing a process. Change ideas can be rapidly tested on a small scale to determine whether they result in improvements in the local environment.
  • Within each change idea, the CMCP lists evidence or practice-based tools and resources that can be adapted or adopted in a healthcare setting to improve cholesterol management.

The science behind cardiovascular risk reduction is continually evolving there’s strong evidence that a systematic approach to cholesterol management can significantly improve cholesterol related care processes and outcomes. The purpose of the CMCP is to help healthcare practices put systems in place to care for patients with dyslipidemia more efficiently and effectively.
