Credits: None available.

Description

Did you know that 80% blood pressure control is well within our reach? We have the evidence and know what to do, but underutilization of evidence-based hypertension services persists across the entire spectrum of care, leading to poor health outcomes and unnecessary health care costs. This session will lay out the vision for the Million HeartsĀ® 2022 initiative, key strategies to achieve 80% blood pressure control, including a practical application case study from a health center, and challenge us to think about value-based solutions that protect consumers, reward providers, and preserve innovation.
