Recognition Program

The Target: BP Recognition Program celebrates physician practices and health systems, who treat patients with hypertension, for achieving blood pressure control rates at or above 70 percent within the populations they serve. These achievements will ultimately lead to a reduction in the number of Americans who suffer heart attacks and strokes.  Be part of the Recognition Program by registering now.

Data Submission

The data submission process should be as seamless as possible. Evaluation data include:

  • Total adult patient population
  • Total adult patient population by age, sex and ethnicity
  • Total number of adult patients with hypertension
  • Total number of adult patients with controlled hypertension

Organizations can submit 2023 data beginning in early 2024. Participants will be notified of their recognition status in the fall.
