CTuF1 - Making Self-Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring Work in Your Health Center: Lessons From the Field


Aug 29, 2017 8:30am ‐ Aug 29, 2017 10:00am

Description

Did you know that having patients measure their blood pressure outside of the clinical setting can significantly improve blood pressure outcomes? Did you know that a recent study also found that reimbursement of home blood pressure monitoring, also called self-measured blood pressure monitoring (SMBP) would generate overall net savings and up to a 4:1 positive return on investment (ROI) in the first year and up to 20:1 ROI after 10 years? The healthcare system is moving toward SMBP as a standard of care - don't wait to get on board! This session will provide tips, lessons learned, and quick wins to accelerate implementing a successful SMBP program in your own health center.

  • - Explain why SMBP is superior to office-based measurement.
  • - Describe key elements of implementing a home blood pressure monitor loaner program and long-term program.
  • - Identify ways to engage patients and staff around SMBP.
