One in three US adults has hypertension. With such a high prevalence rate, it is likely that most primary care practices treat many patients with this condition. Most people with hypertension are aware of their condition, but only about half have their blood pressure under control. People with uncontrolled blood pressure may not be aware that it is the leading cause of premature death in the world. Clinicians need simple and effective ways to improve hypertension control in their patient populations.
