1,100+ healthcare organizations recognized for blood pressure control

The American Medical Association and American Heart Association recognized 1,183 health systems and physician practices for their efforts to control patients' blood pressure.

The recognition is based off self-reported blood pressure control rates healthcare organizations submitted through AMA and AHA's Target: BP Recognition Program.

This year, 46 percent of healthcare organizations achieved a "Gold Status" recognition, meaning they achieved blood pressure control rates of 70 percent or higher. Of the organizations that submitted data in 2018 and 2019, 57 percent improved their blood pressure control rates this year. Sixty-nine organizations also moved from "Participation Status" to "Gold Status" recognitions in 2019.
