Abstract

Hypertension in diabetes patients leads to significant morbidity and mortality. Nonetheless blood pressure (BP) control in patients with diabetes remains disappointing. The authors applied a care bundle to decrease the proportion of patients with BP exceeding 130/80. Teams from 4 sites in 3 states (Minnesota, Florida, and Arizona) developed a bundle consisting of a standardized BP process, an order set, and a patient goal. Baseline data were collected in the first 12 weeks, followed by 6 weeks of implementing changes. The final 16 weeks represented the intervention. There was a statistically significant decrease in the proportion of patients with uncontrolled BP in 3 of 4 sites (P < .0001 in all 3 sites demonstrating improvement). There was a statistically significant improvement in the satisfaction survey (P = .0011). Implementing an evidence-based care bundle for hypertension in diabetes mellitus can improve BP outcomes.
