Reducing Ethnic and racial Disparities by improving Undertreatment, Control, and Engagement in Blood Pressure management with health information technology (REDUCE-BP)

Many factors contribute to gaps in suboptimal blood pressure control and disease outcomes, including physician inertia and lack of awareness of racially-informed hypertension guidelines, low patient adherence to prescribed antihypertensive medications and lifestyle. REDUCE-BP is a pragmatic randomized controlled trial using a multicomponent intervention within the electronic health record (EHR) to improve guideline concordance and disease controls for individuals with uncontrolled hypertension.
