The Healthy Heart, Healthy You Program is a care coordination home blood pressure monitoring program supported by licensed vocational nurse patient care coordinators and an operations coordinator in conjunction with the patient’s primary care provider.
Each enrolled patient receives a blood pressure monitor free of charge that is theirs to keep. Our primary goal is to improve blood pressure management, navigation to appropriate medical and community services, and just-in-time education regarding self-management of high blood pressure. Evidence-based strategies are utilized to improve blood pressure and reduce risk of hypertension related complications in alignment with our quality measures.
