Health professionals are well aware of the heart attack and stroke prevalence in the United States. Currently there are more than two million heart attacks and strokes each year, and they are the first and fourth leading causes of death, claiming over 800,000 lives annually. Hypertension and diabetes are the biggest contributors to these diseases, but are not managed as well as they could be.
Utilizing EHR technology
The problem has been spelled out through many communication channels. The tactical issue for physicians lies in the ongoing identification and management of patients who have hypertension and diabetes as well as uncovering those at risk or on the cusp that may not realize it. When under control, hypertension and diabetes pose a much lower risk for heart attack and stroke. That’s why M-CEITA teaches providers how to utilize their existing EHR technology to help health care teams monitor and regulate this population. We have identified a process that any provider with EHR technology can implement to manage their patient population, regardless of vendor or time constraints.
