This year, the Utah Million Hearts Coalition recognized 54 primary care clinics as champions in blood pressure measurement and control. These clinics have met the highest standards of blood pressure measurement and control through proven evidence-based strategies including patient education on how lifestyle choices impact blood pressure, precise measurement of blood pressure, engaging patients with a treatment plan to improve medication adherence, fully utilizing the electronic health record for hypertension care and working as a team to ensure positive outcomes for patients with hypertension.
The Utah Million Hearts Coalition applauds the achievements of these clinics and encourages all clinics to utilize the resources available through the Utah Million Hearts Coalition and national Million Hearts Initiative.
