Using PCORnet to Compare Blood Pressure Control Strategies

Project: Research project

Description

In collaboration with the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Medical Association (AMA), the Health eHeart Alliance and PCORnet Cardiovascular Health Collaborative Research Network propose to establish the National Blood Pressure Control Laboratory to enhance cardiovascular health and blood pressure control in the US. The BP Control Lab will enable blood pressure control surveillance, provide feedback to healthcare systems and clinicians, and conduct efficient pragmatic comparative effectiveness research on interventions designed to enhance blood pressure control. Sites will assist to:
(a) Establish a national blood pressure control surveillance system using PCORnet that generates national statistics on blood pressure control and provides routine feedback on institution- and clinic-level control rates to participating institutions.
