Nearly half of American adults have high blood pressure (BP), and uncontrolled hypertension is a leading cause of heart attacks and strokes. The American Medical Association (AMA) developed the evidence-based MAP BP Program to help health care organizations improve their BP control rates. An important part of this program is to teach health care professionals why self-measured BP (SMBP) monitoring is important to diagnosing and treating patients with hypertension and how to incorporate an SMBP protocol into their practice.
