The rates of high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke in Michigan are all higher than the U.S. median. Residents of rural Michigan are more likely to die prematurely from cardiovascular disease (CVD) than urban residents.*

Together we can make a difference!

The Healthy Hearts for Michigan* (HH4M) program offers health care clinics the tools and resources they need to help patients with CVD.

Our tools can assist you in:

  • Utilizing proper blood pressure measurement protocols
  • Leveraging EHR data to identify undiagnosed hypertension “Hiding in Plain Sight”
  • Implementing or improving a patient Self-Measured Blood Pressure program
  • Employing an “Ask-Advise-Connect” Tobacco Cessation program
  • Enhancing patient engagement and shared decision making
  • Increasing workflow efficiency
  • Promoting team-based care
