RestartResume
Dr. Paul Whelton, chair of the 2017 hypertension clinical practice guidelines, explains how the new recommendations will affect patients.
  • Overview

    Under the 2017 Hypertension Guidelines, 46 percent of U.S. adults have high blood pressure, which is up from 32 percent under the old benchmark. This interview covers the key information physicians need to know from the new guidelines in order to improve blood pressure control rates.

    Host Dr. Jennifer Caudle chats with Dr. Paul Whelton, chair of the 2017 blood pressure guidelines writing committee, about how the new guidelines will affect patients.

    The American Medical Association's M.A.P. framework and blood pressure improvement program is dedicated to helping health care providers improve blood pressure control in their adult patient populations, and a new AMA resource can help you succeed in Medicare’s Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) while you manage and treat high blood pressure. This resource outlines the different measures that relate to hypertension management in each MIPS performance category, potential MIPS score results, and related AMA resources that can help you improve the health of your patients with hypertension while checking all your MIPS boxes along the way.
