People living with hypertension, coronary artery disease (CAD), and congestive heart failure (CHF) are among the highest cost members to a healthcare payer. People may have 1, 2, or all 3 of these conditions simultaneously and having one of these often increases the risk of developing the others. This is especially true if these conditions are not well-managed. Early detection and treatment of hypertension reduces disease progression to the other 2, simultaneously driving down costs. This course will provide evidence-based recommendations on how to provide clinically-appropriate care of hypertension and stable CAD, teach patients self-management techniques for their conditions, how to work with patients to create an action plan, and identify other factors that could impact their condition
