Current Primary Outcome Measures
 (submitted: December 20, 2013)
Improve blood pressure control [ Time Frame: One year ]
The primary aim of this quality improvement project is to improve blood pressure control among patients receiving routine care for hypertension in a diverse group of ambulatory clinical practices. Specifically, we will measure change from baseline in Systolic Blood Pressure at 12 months.
Original Primary Outcome Measures Same as current
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures
 (submitted: December 20, 2013)
The best way to help clinical practices improve blood pressure control [ Time Frame: One year ]
A secondary aim is for AMA and JHM quality improvement staff to figure out the best way to help clinical practices in achieving improved blood pressure control. Specifically, we will measure success in implementing changes in hypertension care delivery processes by surveying clinical practice staff.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title Improving Health Outcomes: Blood Pressure
Official Title Improving Health Outcomes: Blood Pressure Program in Practice Sites Located in the Chicago Metropolitan Area and in Maryland
Brief Summary This quality improvement project is focused on improving hypertension care delivery processes in ambulatory clinical practices, 5 in Illinois and 5 in Maryland for a total of 10 practice sites.The primary aim of this quality improvement project is to improve blood pressure control among patients receiving routine care for hypertension in a diverse group of ambulatory clinical practices. A secondary aim is for American Medical Association (AMA) and Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) quality improvement staff to figure out the best way to help clinical practices in achieving improved blood pressure control, including working to increase the use of home blood pressure monitoring.

Study Population This quality improvement project will be conducted in 10 ambulatory practice sites that are distinguished by their medical specialty and practice size. There are 9 diverse sites that specialize in family medicine and internal medicine. One site is a cardiology practice. Practices range in size from a mid-size medical group to a single-physician practice. The total number of physicians participating in this project is between 40 and 50. The sites are located in various neighborhoods in the Chicago and Baltimore metropolitan areas and in rural Maryland. The patient populations of the sites are representative of the United States population.
