80% of our members with high blood pressure have it under control

Kaiser Permanente is a national leader in controlling hypertension.

At Kaiser Permanente, we’ve made a commitment to stop high blood pressure, with control rates that are leading the nation.

Nearly half of the U.S. adult population has high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. There are no obvious symptoms, and many people are unaware they have the condition, which dramatically increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Kaiser Permanente screens all members for high blood pressure, and if a problem is found, provides support in getting their blood pressure under control with lifestyle changes or medication. Our efforts have made us a national leader in the fight against this “silent killer.”

Rating based on the 2019 Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) for commercial plans, used by more than 90% of America’s health plans to measure performance.
