Health Care System Factors for Blood Pressure: Doctor-diagnosed Hypertension

Health Care System Factors

In 2017, the CDC published a guide titled [https://www.cdc.gov/dhdsp/pubs/guides/best-practices/index.htm "Best Practices for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Programs"]. This guide outlines 8 effective strategies for lowering high blood pressure and cholesterol levels that can be implemented in health care systems and that involve community-clinical links. These strategies are 1) team-based care, 2) collaborative practice agreements, 3) self-measured blood pressure, 4) self-management and education, 5) reducing medication costs, 6) clinical decision support, 7) community health workers, and 8) medication therapy management.
