Disease ProgramHypertension

Reveal barriers you haven’t been able to see before to build deeper, more meaningful relationships.

Current practices of telling patients with hypertension to eat better, exercise more, and take their medications have not been sufficient to move the needle on individual or population health.

Silver Fern’s Hypertension Program unlocks the reasons that patients are not following through on treatment plans with modules focused on medication management, home blood pressure monitoring, lifestyle management, and psychosocial issues that impact patients’ ability to effectively control their blood pressure.

The World Health Organization estimates that 1 in 4 men and 1 in 5 women have hypertension worldwide.~ Hypertension is a major risk fact for cardiovascular disease and stroke, but only 1 in 4 adults have their blood pressure under control.* The previous Surgeon General, Vice Admiral Jerome M. Adams, M.D., M.P.H., issued a Call to Action urging Americans to recognize and address hypertension control as a national, public health priority.^

Featured Modules

The Hypertension Program includes fourteen research-based modules that address self-management behaviors and psychosocial barriers, including:

Home Blood Pressure Monitoring

Focuses on current home blood pressure monitoring use, goals, and barriers.

Weight Loss

Identifies patients who are interested in pursuing weight loss and assesses their interest in a variety of therapeutic options.

Meal Plan

Explores the intake of foods and nutrients that have positive and negative impacts on blood pressure and patient barriers to choosing a blood-pressurefriendly diet.

All of Silver Fern’s assessment modules meet Medicaid readability guidelines.
By asking Silver Fern questions that I would not have thought of and working with members to set up realistic and achievable goals in their daily lives, ultimately that helps them set up routines that turn into a lifestyle over time and sets them up for success.
