or individuals with chronic disease.

2. Preventive benefits should be an essential component of meaningful health care coverage, and incentives should be built into the health care system to promote appropriate preventive health strategies.

All public and private sector health insurance benefits' packages should provide for the identification, monitoring and treatment of risk factors that lead to cardiovascular disease and stroke in patients of all ages.

3. All residents of the United States should receive affordable, high quality health care.

Health care reform should promote improvements and the evaluation of the quality of care delivered, including adherence to clinical practice guidelines and education efforts to help consumers evaluate health care quality.

4. Race, gender and geographic disparities in health care must be eliminated.

Health care reform proposals should, at a minimum, encourage monitoring, reporting and evaluation of data regarding the consistency and equity of health care delivery. Standardized, evidence-based quality measures should be used for this purpose.

5. Support of biomedical and health services research should be a national priority, and inflation-adjusted funding for the National Institutes of Health must be maintained and expanded.

Health care reform initiatives should support increased investments in biomedical research to accelerate the identification of causes and the cures for disease, especially cardiovascular disease and stroke.

6. The United States' health care workforce should continue to grow and diversify through a sustained and substantial national commitment to medical education and clinical training.

Any health care reform proposal should provide sufficient public health funding, medical education funding and clinical training resources for programs that improve chronic disease management, care coordination and patient-centered care.
