Hypertension Management Program (HMP) Toolkit

The Hypertension Management Program (HMP) toolkit is an online interactive training for a team-based, patient-centered, integrated care model. The goal of the HMP is to improve the quality of patient care and decrease the number of patients with uncontrolled hypertension to improve each patient’s overall health and wellbeing. Evaluations have shown the HMP to be effective in the promotion of hypertension control among patients in healthcare settings that serve populations who bear a disproportionate risk of hypertension (including those without health insurance).

This toolkit was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) to provide healthcare organizations, including those in resource-constrained settings, with the information and resources to implement the HMP and improve hypertension control among their patients. CDC DHDSP developed an online toolkit that consists of interactive e-learning modules that are designed to guide learners through the key features of the ten HMP components and prepare them for implementation at their health system. The online e-learning modules are accompanied by a PDF toolkit document that can be used as an additional resource for users.

The purposes of this toolkit and the associated online e-learning modules are to provide healthcare organizations:

  • An overview of the HMP, its ten core components, and suggestions for implementing the HMP in clinical settings.
  • Guidance to staff, administrators, and other healthcare professionals on how to implement and adapt the HMP for their unique clinical setting.
