  • This statement summarizes the current evidence for population cardiovascular health (CVH), reviews contemporary sources for relevant performance and clinical metrics, and highlights the role of implementation science strategies.
  • While many of the initiatives reviewed in this statement support the enhancement of secondary prevention (e.g., improving blood pressure control), this statement provides a roadmap to expand efforts to impact primordial and primary prevention to optimize CVH.
  • The clinical suggestions are practical and provide the literature that supports strategies for scaling evidence-based interventions across healthcare systems to maximize the population CVH impact.
