Healthy Hearts Northwest

Healthy Hearts Northwest (H2N) was one of seven regional cooperatives in AHRQ’s EvidenceNOW initiative, which was dedicated to helping small- and medium-sized primary care practices across the country use the latest evidence to improve the heart health of millions of Americans.

H2N's goal was to study strategies to build QI capacity with a focus on improving cardiovascular health of individual patients and populations.

The project was a collaboration between the MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation, the Oregon Rural-based Practice Research Network, and Comagine Health. 

In addition, H2N generated several publications, including:
