  • The number of patients screened for cholesterol went from 55 percent to 97 percent.
  • The coordinated, evidence-based care, enabled by KP HealthConnect(R) and an electronic care registry, increased the survival rate dramatically among patients enrolled in the service. It is estimated that more than 135 deaths and 260 costly emergency interventions were prevented annually as a result of improved care. Now, the latest study results suggest that once the program has helped get risk factors under control, patients can then be discharged and followed virtually with the same success.

    Other authors on this study include: Thomas Delate, PhD; Jon Rasmussen, PharmD; Tammy L. Humphries, PharmD; and John A. Merenich, MD; for the Kaiser Permanente Colorado Clinical Pharmacy Cardiac Risk Service Study Group.
