Blood Pressure Management and Control

High blood pressure is one of the leading causes of heart disease and stroke.

One in every three U.S. adults (67 million) has high blood pressure, and only about half of these individuals have their condition under control.

Of the 36 million Americans who have uncontrolled hypertension, most have a usual source of care (89.4%), received medical care in the previous year (87.7%), and have health insurance (85.2%).

The purpose of this document is to deliver tested strategies for busy clinicians to aid in efforts related to hypertension control.
