Home Blood Pressure Monitoring: Reimagined Care Challenge 2016
This program sought to engage patients in assisting with management of their hypertension by utilizing an at home blood pressure monitoring program. Patient materials and program activities were developed based on the outcomes of separate co-design sessions with patients with hypertension and care teams within community health centers. A pilot program was conducted using the developed materials which were well received by patients and community health center staff.

Million Hearts established a two-year cooperative agreement with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) to pilot the Million Hearts quality improvement strategy and tools to improve the detection and control of high blood pressure in community health centers that serve populations disproportionately burdened by hypertension. NACHC recruited 11 federally qualified health centers nationwide to participate in this program including two Health Center Partner member health centers, La Maestra Community Health Centers and Neighborhood Healthcare.
