Michigan Million Hearts

Million Hearts® 2022 is a national initiative co-led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes in 5 years. The initiative focuses partner actions on a small set of priorities selected for their impact on heart disease, stroke, and related conditions.

Michigan Million Hearts stakeholders aim to reduce and prevent heart attacks and strokes among Michigan adults by promoting the use of team-based care, health information technology and community health workers.

As part of a national Million Hearts® initiative, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is committed to promoting effective community and clinical strategies to increase the use of electronic health records, data, community health workers, and team-based care. Michigan’s Million Hearts initiative stakeholders work on a variety of strategies within their communities, organizations, and roles to promote heart health.

MDHHS has a distinct role in the Million Hearts Initiative due to its statewide perspective, expertise in evidence-based practice, and access to data and information. MDHHS’ role is to foster cross-sector, cross-community learning and coordination.
