Abstract:

This policy analysis of the Million Hearts Initiative (MHI) intended to examine the extent to which the initiative met the policy process guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The three objectives were to identify which CDC policy process domains were met; to identify any gaps in implementing the CDC Policy domains; and finally, to determine if the MHI was successful in preventing 1 million heart attacks and strokes within 5 years. The CDC policy process includes five domains: problem identification, policy analysis, policy and strategy development, policy enactment, and policy implementation (1). Data was collected through the use of key words that subject matter experts utilize when describing cardiovascular disease (CVD) risks and peer-reviewed journal articles. Results showed that not all CDC domains were met and there were also gaps when implementing the MHI.
