HealthIT2CircleIcon.jpgHypertension Hiding in Plain Sight Practice Module - March 2020
According to the Million Hearts® national campaign, of the 75 million Americans who have hypertension, almost half do not have the condition under control. About 11 million of them don't know their blood pressure (BP) is too high and are not receiving treatment to control it, even though most of these individuals have health insurance and visit a healthcare provider each year. This suggests that potentially millions of people with uncontrolled hypertension are seen by clinicians but remain undiagnosed.

While following best practices and providing the highest levels of care, providers can still have patients “hiding in plain sight” who are at risk for or have undiagnosed hypertension. This module provides healthcare providers with education that will assist them in understanding and addressing the problem of undiagnosed hypertension.
