Finding and Treating Undiagnosed Hypertension Hiding in Plain Sight

This online training module, created through a partnership between the USC Gehr Center for Health Systems Science and Innovation, and The Right Care Initiative, will introduce the importance of identifying patients with undiagnosed hypertension and how the use of electronic health records can assist health care professionals in identifying and managing patients in their practice whose high blood pressure (greater than 140/90 mmHg) has gone undiagnosed. Participants will learn of the health risk associated with this population and steps health systems can take to identify patients with undiagnosed hypertension, a population hiding in plain sight. Participants will also be introduced to resources and opportunities, such as those from the Million Hearts campaign and the American Heart Association, to identify their patients hiding in plain sight.

Improving Hypertension Control Through Home Blood Pressure Telemonitoring with Pharmacists Titrating Medications According Collaborative Orders

This online training module created through a partnership between the USC Gehr Center for Health Systems Science and Innovation and The Right Care Initiative, will highlight a real world effective example of better care management through utilizing team-based care, specifically adding a pharmacist to the care team, to manage uncontrolled hypertension. Participants will hear from Drs. Margolis and Rehrauer from HealthPartners Institute on the work they’ve been doing with project HyperLink where they have utilized both telemonitoring and including a pharmacist on the care team. This ground breaking work was highlighted in the Journal of the Medical Association July 3, 2013 Edition as being the model to emulate for taking hypertension care into the modern age for better patient outcomes.
