Million Hearts

Utah Million Hearts Coalition

The Utah Million Hearts Coalition, in conjunction with the national Million Hearts initiative, aims to prevent heart attacks and strokes by improving clinical blood pressure measurement in Utah through accurate blood pressure measurement and control.

Partners include the Utah Department of Health EPICC Program, Intermountain Healthcare, University of Utah, American Heart Association, HealthInsight, Local Health Departments, private providers, Utah Health Information Network, Utah Medical Association.

What We’re Doing

The Utah Million Hearts Coalition is engaging in efforts around Proper Blood Pressure Measurement including the adoption of Automated Office Blood Pressure Measurement (AOBP) and Self-Monitoring Blood Pressure Measurement (SMBP) in clinical settings; Implementation of Team-Based Care approaches to hypertension management; and Medication Protocols and Treatment Guidelines. We do this through our annual Million Hearts Award, and regular in-person and online training for clinics. For information on how to get involved with the coalition, or to request a training, please contact Edwin Espinel at (801) 538-6605.
