Expecting Success was a national program aimed at improving the quality of cardiac care while reducing racial, ethnic and language disparities. Ten hospitals with racially- and ethnically-diverse patient populations participated in the program, and improved the quality of care being provided to their heart failure and heart attack patients. Although the hospital collaborative component of the program came to a close in May 2008, the program and its lessons continue to inform other efforts.
