The MEDTAPP Hypertension Quality Improvement Project (QIP) is the first quality improvement project that is part of the Ohio Department of Medicaid Chronic Conditions Quality Collaborative. By using a standardized plan of care and best practice guidelines to manage hypertension, the project aims to improve quality of care and reduce and/or control cardiovascular disease, which is the leading cause of death nationwide.
A design committee consisting of clinical and subject matter experts throughout Ohio will develop components of the Hypertension QIP, including a quality improvement change package that incorporates evidence-based research interventions for the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular disease. With coaching from quality improvement experts, Primary Care Practices in Ohio will be selected to employ the change package, engage in project quality improvement activities, and transmit Electronic Health Record data at least once per month, but preferred every two weeks.
