Healthcare Program: Atrial Fibrillation

ACP, in collaboration with the Heart Rhythm Society, has launched the ACP Advance: Atrial Fibrillation (AF) healthcare program (formerly ACP Quality Connect), which provides participants with the skills to lead practice transformation and QI efforts, resulting in real and meaningful change in AF management and stroke prevention.

The healthcare program takes a collaborative, team-based approach to implement practice transformation and QI strategies that improve care of patients with AF and help prevent stroke. The skills gained through participation can be applied to a number of other clinical conditions and quality challenges. The program offers specialized training in:

  • QI and practice transformation methodology
  • Identifying and understanding stroke risk in the AF patient
  • Engagement of patients in understanding the risks and benefits of anticoagulants
  • Developing a treatment plan together with patients to reduce stroke risk
  • Assisting patients in managing their own treatment and health
  • Integrating use of ACP’s patient tools in practice and treatment workflow
