EvidenceNOW is focusing on helping primary care practices use the latest evidence to improve the heart health of Americans, and it is one of the largest initiatives funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

ESCALATES is the national evaluation for EvidenceNOW. The ESCALATES team is studying which practice supports and quality improvement strategies are most effective across the seven regional cooperatives participating in this initiative.
