AHIP Solutions SmartBrief | Mar 27, 2015

A CDC report found that overall mortality from hypertension has risen 23% since 2000. Meanwhile, mortality from all other causes is down 21%. Deaths linked to hypertension among 45- to 64-year-old men increased by about 58% and nearly 37% for women in the same age group from 2000 to 2013. Ethnic and racial disparities persist but are smaller. "There is a critical need to facilitate and incentivize improvement in blood pressure control and heart health, as well provide optimal patient care," Dr. Gregg Fonarow said. HealthDay News (03/26)
