Outpatient Blood Pressure Control
Regional Health patients, age 18-85, who have a diagnosis of high blood pressure are included in this measure to determine how many of those patients have blood pressure less than 140/90. Because blood pressure can be impacted by a number of variables, RH’s goal is to have 73% of these patients meet this goal.
Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections
A catheter associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is an infection related to the use of a urinary catheter. Regional Health’s goal is to reduce the number of catheter associated urinary tract infections to zero.
