In this two-year observational study, we created a Cardiovascular Risk and Reduction Learning Community consisting of DARTNet care providers and patients. We examined the electronic audit and feedback to see if this reduces major adverse cardiovascular events and their associated health care costs in patients.
The specific aims for this project are:
We will conduct this study from October 2009 through March 2012.
