Alameda Health System Receives $400,000 Grant From Kaiser Permanente to Reduce Heart Attacks and Strokes

Alameda Health System (AHS) announced that Kaiser Permanente will continue its support of AHS’s Preventing Heart Attacks and Strokes Everyday (PHASE) program with a two-year, $400,000 grant. AHS will expand the number of patients participating in the PHASE program, which targets adults ages 45 to 74 who have uncontrolled diabetes or hypertension. PHASE combines a fixed-dose medication regiment with lifestyle changes. Successfully implementing the program requires team-based care, with coordination between pharmacies and direct care providers, along with reliable patient data management.

Kaiser Permanente is awarding a total of $5.25 million in 17 PHASE grants across Northern California. All organizations receiving PHASE grants become part of a learning community that engages in training, problem solving and advancing best practices.
