This online METRIC module helps you assess your practice’s performance through chart audits that sample key indicators of optimal care for your patients with hypertension, now updated to align with JNC-8 guidelines. Evaluate the structure and processes of your practice to determine how well they support your patients with hypertension. Also, select and implement at least one practice improvement intervention to improve your care of your patients with hypertension.
The participant will complete an activity evaluation that is a part of an internal assessment tool able to collect the data from each evaluation.
