Healthy Hearts in the Heartland (H3) is a federally funded research program working with small practice clinics in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana to implement and evaluate quality improvement strategies for cardiovascular care. H3 seeks to identify the best practices, tools and supports needed for small clinic settings to improve the heart health of their patients. This type of work is becoming common in large health systems; small clinics have the opportunity to pioneer how this quality improvement work can be done effectively here in the Midwest. Abel Kho is principal investigator for the study.
