High blood pressure is known as the silent killer. If left untreated, it can lead to stroke and heart attack. Nationally, only about 55% of people with high blood pressure have their blood pressure under control. At KPMAS, your efforts year over year have helped more than 90% of our members with high blood pressure stay under control!

We are committed to improving clinical outcomes for our members and helping to decrease their risk for cardiovascular disease.
