Zufall Health receives three American Heart Association outpatient program achievement awards
In September 2022, Zufall Health received the following awards from the American Heart Association:
- BP Gold + Award level recognition, the highest, by the American Heart Association® and the American Medical Association. These awards celebrates physician practices and health systems, who treat patients with hypertension, for achieving blood pressure control rates at or above 70 percent within the populations they serve. These achievements will ultimately lead to a reduction in the number of Americans who suffer heart attacks and strokes.
- Check. Change. Control. Cholesterol™ Gold Award for commitment to reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke through improved cholesterol management. More than 70 percent of Zufall’s adult, at-risk atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease patients are appropriately managed with Statin therapy.
- Type 2 Diabetes℠ Participant Award for its commitment to addressing the relationship between diabetes and the risk of heart disease and stroke. The Participant award recognizes practices that have completed data submission, including clinical measure entry, and committed to improving quality of care for patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular risk factors.
