Hypertension Control During COVID-19

May 13, 2021

In March of 2020, Medicare fully opened the door for telehealth services in response to COVID-19. How did that affect basic primary care services like treating hypertension in the first few months of the pandemic?

In a new Letter to the Editor published in the American Journal of Managed Care, leading Aledade researchers worked with hundreds of primary care practices in Aledade ACOs across the country to see how telehealth affected patients with hypertension. They found that, while telehealth helped, there were many patients who fell through the gaps.

How should primary care professionals close those gaps? Join us on Thursday, May 20th at 1:00 PM for a free webinar featuring top experts as they discuss how Community Health Centers have found some essential best practices to control blood pressure in their own care settings. And stay tuned to Aledade.com for more ways to fight untreated hypertension in your patient population.
