Impact high cost hypertensives

Multiple studies show that patients who regularly monitor their blood pressure at home versus the traditional model of office-based care, have better hypertension control when managed by a healthcare professional. 

•  1 in 3 adults have hypertension, or high blood pressure
•  Hypertension increases an employee’s healthcare costs by 33%
•  Untreated hypertension can damage the heart, blood vessels, kidneys and other parts of the body

 

Abacus Health's e-Blood Pressure Program

A word for our client and partners

This program is wonderful. Thanks to this program I learned I had a blood pressure issue and I am working to lower my reading with diet and exercise…I would never have realized I had an issue with my BP without this program.

- Program Participant

I would not have seen the results that I have without the program to help me manage my blood pressure.

Program Participant

I like that the eBP Program provides an easy way to track blood pressure history and share with my doctor.

COVID19 Update
Abacus Health

Maintaining the health and safety of our employees and program members is our top priority during this public health crisis.

The Abacus Health HelpLine is fully operational. HelpLine Advocates are available to answer member’s questions about our programs, assist with program enrollment and schedule a time for members to speak with our clinical staff.  Additionally, our entire staff is fully operational and operating remotely.

Due to the challenge in scheduling/keeping routine appointments, all members in the program with a lab or exam coming due between March 1 and April 30, 2020 will receive a 60-day extension. This ensures that our members continue to have access to their much-needed incentives. We will continue to evaluate this as needed. We understand that not all areas of the country are experiencing healthcare system challenges, so we encourage members to call their doctor to determine if they should keep their scheduled appointment.

Our program members are encouraged to take advantage of the valuable resource they have in our Nurses, Diabetes Educators and Pharmacists. Members can schedule a call with one of our clinicians by calling 800.643.8028.
