Foresight Family Physicians has been selected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as one of 516 awardees in 47 states to help reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes among millions of Medicare beneficiaries. By participating in the Million Hearts Cardiovascular Disease Risk Reduction Model, Foresight will work to decrease cardiovascular disease by assessing an individual patient’s risk for heart attack or stroke and recommending prevention interventions.
“Our goal is to help our patients have the best health outcomes possible” says Dr Reicks. “Reducing risk for heart attack or stroke is possible and achievable with lifestyle and preventative health interventions.”
Over 500 Medicare patients at Foresight will be eligible to participate in this initiative. For additional information about the Million Hearts Cardiovascular Risk Reduction Model, please visit: https://innovation.cms.gov/initiatives/Million-Hearts-CVDRRM
