Payer Perspective: Hypertension and Coronary Artery Disease

Green Clock Hours: 1.25 - 1.50

People living with hypertension (HTN) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are among the highest cost members to a healthcare payer. Patients can have HTN and CAD simultaneously. Unfortunately, having one of these conditions often increases the risk of developing other types of chronic illnesses. This is especially true if HTN and CAD are not well-managed. Early detection and treatment of HTN reduces disease progression, simultaneously driving down costs. This course will provide evidence-based recommendations on providing clinically-appropriate care for HTN and CAD, teach patients self-management techniques for their conditions, work with patients to create an action plan, and identify other factors that could impact their condition.
