When the Center for High Blood Pressure treats the medically indigent, the entire community benefits:
We relieve the financial burden on the community by providing care to people who have chronic conditions, preventing inevitable and costly outcomes.
We provide free or low-cost prescription medications for people who could not otherwise afford them.
We teach people with chronic health problems how to manage their lifestyles to improve overall wellness. This means they miss fewer days from work and employers reduce health-related productivity losses.
We relieve the burden on full-service clinics by serving a targeted population with appropriate and efficient care.
We reduce inappropriate use of hospital emergency rooms by people who are uninsured.
