Population Health Cohort Goal

The goal of the Population Health Cohort is to improve the health of Louisiana residents through the implementation of evidence-based strategies within a primary care setting, with a specific focus on heart disease related outcomes.

Primary objectives:

  • Identify patients with undiagnosed hypertension.
  • Advance the use of health information systems that support team-based care to increase control among adults with known high blood pressure and high cholesterol with a focus on health disparities, hypertension, and high cholesterol.
  • Advance the adoption and use of EHRs to identify, track, and monitor measures for clinical/social services and support needs to address health care disparities and health outcomes for adults at highest risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) with a focus on hypertension and high cholesterol.
  • Promote the use of standardized processes or tools to identify the social services and support needs of patient populations at highest risk of CVD through multidisciplinary care teams.

Benefits of participation:

  • Contribute to Louisiana’s efforts to improve the health of those at risk for cardiovascular disease.
