Community Pharmacy Pilot Program Improves Blood Pressure Outcomes

11/23/2015 | HealthPartners
Results from a community partnership among HealthPartners, Sterling pharmacy and PharmaSmart show the potential of community pharmacists to improve hypertension.

The six-month pilot program included 270 HealthPartners members with a diagnosis of hypertension and a prescription for medication to lower blood pressure at a Sterling pharmacy. Blood pressure improved for about one third of patients over the course of the pilot.
