Arkansas Clinical Transformation (ACT) Program

The ACT Program

Arkansas has some of the highest prevalence rates for chronic diseases in the nation, such as hypertension at 58.4%, hyperlipidemia at 36.4%, ischemic heart disease at 30.3%, and diabetes mellitus at 25.5%.1 In efforts to mitigate these burdens of disease, the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) operates the Arkansas Clinical Transformation (ACT) program, a quality improvement (QI) intervention to help primary care clinics improve chronic disease management.
