Webinar – Population Health Issues and Opportunities: Spotlighting High Blood Pressure

07/24/18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

Improving population health requires health systems to take a tailored approach and re-prioritize their efforts to address the challenges of costly conditions impacting their communities. According to recent estimates from the American Heart Association, 100 million Americans have high blood pressure, and consequences of inadequate treatment include risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, renal failure and early death, as well as a high cost of care. Get practical tips to help put new clinical practice guidelines into action to improve the care of patients with high blood pressure.
