The Check. Change. Control. Cholesterol™ recognition program acknowledges ambulatory health centers and systems in their efforts to reduce heart attacks and strokes by appropriately managing cholesterol in their at-risk patient populations. The program is designed to help participants improve clinical practice while being celebrated for their hard-work and dedication throughout the process.

Levels of success

There are two levels at which your organization may be recognized.

Gold Status

Recognizes practices that have 70 percent or more of their adult, at-risk ASCVD (Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease) patient population appropriately managed with Statin therapy.

Additionally, all awardees will receive:

Register and Apply for recognition

Step 1: Registration – Available Year Round

All practices should register with the Check. Change. Control. Program whether they would like to submit for Participation or Gold awards or not. Registrants will have access to the latest program information, tools, and resources. To Register, you will need to know:
  • Your organization’s total adult (21-75 years) patient population count
  • The total number of clinical providers in your organization
  • Percentage of your patients that are a race/ethnicity other than white, non-Hispanic
  • The total number of clinical locations in your health system. Hint: you can register each location individually or as a system overall.
  • Your Electronic Health Record (EHR) System

Step 2: Participation Award – Available from February 5th to June 1st, 2018

Participants in this recognition category are affirming their commitment to using ASCVD Risk Estimation tools and improving the identification ASCVD risk in eligible adult patients. To become a participant, any registrant just needs to answer a few quick questions on their use of ASCVD risk estimation tools, their Electronic Health Record’s ability to capture this information, and affirm their commitment to improvement.

Step 3: Gold Award – Available from February 5th to June 1st, 2018

Participants can up their award level by submitting simplified data for a Gold Award. In this category, participants will self-report their organization’s compliance to MIPS measure #438: Statin Therapy for the Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease. Participants will be asked to submit a numerator and denominator value for their practice population for the previous calendar year, e.g.  Applications for 2018 Recognition will contain data from January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017.
