Organization:
Ohio State University

Our overall aim is to decrease the burden of stroke and its modifiable risk factors among older women in primary care practices by leveraging existing health information technology (IT) platforms. Our central hypothesis is that an individualized, automated CV health assessment intervention will improve modifiable risk factors for stroke and the treatment of modifiable risk factors for stroke among older female patients in a primary care practice, and the knowledge and awareness of modifiable risk factors for stroke among primary care providers. The rationale for the proposed research is that the American Heart Association's CV health metric is evidence-based, has substantial extant infrastructure, and can be readily interpreted by providers and patients in primary care settings.
