Definition of Heart Failure
• A complex clinical syndrome that can result from any structural
or functional cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the
ventricle to fill with or eject blood1
• Cardinal manifestations of HF are dyspnea and fatigue, which
may limit exercise tolerance and fluid retention, which may
lead to pulmonary congestion and peripheral edema1
Normal heart2
Hypertrophied heart
(diastolic HF)2
Dilated heart
(systolic HF)2

Alignment with The Public Health Action Plan to Prevent
Heart Disease and Stroke: Ten-Year Update
• The 2014 Action Plan identified a need for action in the area of heart
failure (HF):
 High prevalence and mortality
 Deaths in 2009 from HF totaled 56,410
 5.1 million Americans currently live with the disease
 Disparities: Higher prevalence among black males and females
 HF prevalence believed to be steadily increasing and estimated to
reach over 8 million Americans by 2030
 High cost burden
 HF total cost burden projected to increase to $70 billion in 2030, a
120% increase from 2012
 Projected cost of HF treatment would exceed $160 billion in direct
costs when including the total costs of all cardiac care for HF patients

Etiology of Heart Failure
Coronary Artery Disease
More common cause
of HF cases in blacks
LVH = left ventricular hypertrophy
More common cause of
HF cases in whites
HF = heart failure
MI = myocardial infarction

Eliminating Disparities
Social Determinants of Health
• The circumstances in which people are
born, grow up, live, work, and age, as
well as the systems put in place to deal
with illness
• These circumstances in-turn shaped by
a wider set of forces: economics, social
policies, and politics
Partnership. Policy. Action. 8
Review of initiative goals
• The initiative began in Fall 2013 and is supported by an
unrestricted sponsorship from Novartis
• The goals of this 2-3 year initiative are to:
– Engage the right collaborators to carry out a set of high
probability strategies to improve outcomes for people with
heart failure
– Measure the outcomes and report on successes to
encourage their widespread adoption

Tactic: Stronger Hearts™ Helpline pilot program
During Phase 1 of the project, Steering Committee worked to identify a
high probability tactic to address the burden of heart failure at a
community level:
• Vision: to provide the model for a scalable community-based tool to
help strengthen awareness around heart failure, heighten patients’
sense of empowerment over their disease and enhance their ability
to follow the treatment plan that their provider has laid out for them
– The Stronger Hearts™ Helpline will draw upon existing resources both
nationally and in the community, including the 2-1-1 call center
Phase 2 of the project will focus on implementation of the helpline,
measurement and preparation for publication

Pilot site: San Bernardino, CA
Community snapshot:
– Largest county in contiguous US
– Highly diverse area:
• Both rural and urban areas
• Total population: 2.088 million
• “Majority minority” population:
49.9% Latino, 7.8% African
– High rates of cardiovascular disease
– Rising rates of high blood pressure
– Disproportionate rates of
hospitalization connected with CV

Background on San Bernardino 2-1-1 system
History of nationwide 2-1-1
• The FCC established 2-1-1 permanently as a national network of health and
human service referral lines in 1997
San Bernardino 2-1-1 infrastructure highlights
• Launched in 2006, fielded over 69,000 calls in 2013
• Accredited by Alliance of Information and Referral Systems
• Experience serving as helpline for the Dept. of Behavioral Health (6+ years)
• Sophisticated call logging, messaging and recording capabilities
• Recognized as a trusted community resource, including by Hispanic, African
American and the elderly communities which face the highest HF disparities
