Frequently asked questions

Answers to some of the most common questions
about AMA MAP BP

What resources does the AMA provide as part of AMA MAP BP?

In collaboration with your organization’s leadership, quality improvement, information technology, clinical and operations teams, the AMA will provide planning and support during program setup and implementation, which can include the AMA MAP BP Dashboard, to help your organization reach its desired objectives.

AMA experts will provide coaching to help:

  • Train and assist your clinical team on AMA MAP BP. With ongoing communication and support from AMA, designated clinical team members will serve as practice coaches to implement the program
  • Co-lead a kickoff event presentation(s) with your faculty, assisting in the creation of content for these events
  • Assist in assessing your practice sites’ readiness to implement the program
  • Assist in evaluating and developing a plan for ongoing improvement and spreading it throughout your HCO
  • Support your clinical team(s) throughout the implementation process
  • Share observations and insights as appropriate

AMA experts also provide support with the AMA MAP BP Dashboard:

  • Provide analytics and technical support to incorporate AMA MAP BP performance metrics into new or existing dashboards or data distribution processes
  • Collaborate to validate data in performance metrics
  • Collaborate to analyze performance metrics and provide a dashboard with aggregate results for your leadership teams and actionable, patient-level information for the clinical team

What does it cost to participate in this program?

The resources offered by the AMA as part of the program are provided at no cost to HCOs. To implement the program, HCOs can expect to incur equipment costs if the decision is made to purchase new BP measurement devices as well as incremental allocations in clinical, quality improvement and information technology staffing.

What health systems do you currently work with?

We are working with dozens of HCOs, including federally qualified health centers, academic medical centers and some of the largest multi-state health systems in the United States.

Can we be guaranteed of a 10% improvement in blood pressure control rates in patients with hypertension?

AMA MAP BP has been studied in primary care settings with results published in peer-reviewed manuscripts. In those studies, BP control improved 10 percentage points or more in 6 months.1

Results at your HCO may vary depending on level of organizational prioritization, buy-in from clinical and operations leaders and teams, IT engagement and execution of the program. We are committed to helping you achieve the maximum benefit for your patients, clinical teams and organization.
