Cardiac Population Health

Network Overview

The Cardiac Population Health Network works to improve cardiac health in Texas through a focus on prevention.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been the leading cause of death in Texas since 1940, and currently accounts for two of every five deaths in the state. The estimated cost for treating CVD in 2010 was $177 billion.1

To improve cardiac health in Texas, TMF is convening medical experts, community partners and 177 physician offices. Federal agencies, health care stakeholders and community-based partners are working with TMF to oversee this activity for the state of Texas.

Network Goals

TMF is addressing measures related to improving the "ABCS" of cardiac population health:

  • Aspirin therapy 
  • Blood pressure control
  • Cholesterol control
  • Smoking cessation
