NR 506 NP Week 3 Quality Healthcare: Controlling Hypertension Chamberlain University College of Nursing NR506NP: Healthcare Policy and Leadership Dr. Michelle Keating-Sibel March 22, 202... 0 Quality Healthcare: Controlling Hypertension Hypertension is known as the silent killer and often goes undetected. With the potential risk of causing kidney damage, myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, or cerebrovascular accident, having an elevated blood pressure should not be taken lightly. Given the significance of managing adequate blood pressure levels, it is no surprise that the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) included controlling high blood pressure into the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) under the effectiveness of care category (National Committee for Quality Assurance, 2020). By examining patient interventions for controlling high blood pressure and evaluating methods family nurse practitioners (FNP) can use to measure outcomes, one can begin to understand how these primary care interventions result in improved patient outcomes and cost savings for the practice, as well as result in improved patient ratings. Patient Interventions and Measuring Outcomes Patients play an important role in their health and must be conscientious of actions that can affect their overall wellbeing. Patient interventions are essential to improve the patient’s condition and are a necessary part of care.

With such a staggering number of individuals affected by hypertension, patients must also do their part to improve their health. When a patient is working to control high blood pressure, patient interventions will be crucial to their success.
