The AHA and AMA launched the Target: BP Recognition Program in 2017 to spotlight efforts to improve heart health and blood pressure health awareness. It’s part of the national initiative from these groups, called Target: BP.
Over 1,100 physician practices and health systems — including Appleton’s ThedaCare — have joined in the Target: BP program. Participating groups get access to a website with tools and resources physicians can use to improve blood pressure control rates.
This recognition means the ThedaCare system has at least 70 percent of adults patients with high blood pressure controlled.
