The Healthy Hearts for Oklahoma (H2O) project is designed to ask the research question of whether a Healthcare Extension System can speed the spread of evidence-based practice to primary care across a state.

 

 

 

The aims of this project are to:  

  • Build the Oklahoma Primary Healthcare Improvement Cooperative
  • Help 300 practices of 10 or fewer clinicians change heart healthcare
  • Measure the impact of a change in low dose Aspirin use, Blood Pressure control, Cholesterol management, and smoking cessation after one year of practice support
  • Learn what support of practice quality improvement works and what does not work.

 

Benefits to the participating practices:

  • Peer clinician coach
  • QI facilitation and support at no cost
  • Maximize EHR and practice workflow
  • MyHealth Quality Reports on ABCS
  • Preparation for Value Based Payment
  • Payment for participation in research surveys
  • MOC and CME credit

 

 

 

 

Eligible Practices:

If you are interested in participating in this project, your practice must have fewer than 10 FTE clinicians at your individual site. The practice must have an electronic medical records system. A connection the the MyHealth Access Network will be provided to participating practices.
