The impact of a measurement and feedback intervention on blood pressure control in ambulatory cardiology practice.
This study evaluated the impact of a targeted provider feedback intervention on rates of blood pressure control. Providers received quarterly provider-specific reports over a period of one year for a group of 300 patients treated in outpatient cardiology clinic practices. These reports as a stand-alone intervention did not affect overall BP control rates in cardiology clinics.
