2 Primary Health Care Mission Improve the health of the Nation s underserved communities and vulnerable populations by assuring access to comprehensive, culturally competent, quality primary health care services

3 Health Center Program Overview Calendar Year ,000 Health Center Sites 18.8 Million Patients 92% At or Below 200% Poverty 38% Uninsured 63% Racial/Ethnic Minorities Over 1 Million Homeless Individuals 865,000 Migrant/Seasonal Farm Workers 165,000 Residents of Public Housing Source: Uniform Data System, 2009

4 Health Center Program National Presence

5 Background Ethnic minorities are more likely to have hypertension and suffer from increased morbidity and mortality compared to non Hispanic Whites. Health Centers offer a health care delivery model in a primary care setting that promotes cost effectiveness, appropriate chronic care management and equitable treatment.

6 Objectives Identify and compare racial/ethnic differences in: Receipt of hypertension care in federally supported Health Centers Adherence to hypertension control recommendations Controlled hypertension Hypertension related emergency room use and hospitalization

7 Methods Data source: 2009 Health Center Patient Survey (n= 4,562) Analysis: For patients with diagnosed chronic hypertension 1 (n=1,464), logistic regression models were estimated to predict: Receipt of lifestyle counseling to control hypertension (diet, sodium intake, exercise, and alcohol consumption) Patient adherence to hypertension control lifestyle counseling Patients with controlled hypertension Hypertension related emergency room visits or hospitalizations over the preceding 2 years 1 Patient was told on 2 or more separate clinical visits s/he had hypertension

8 Methods Statistical models controlled for: Age Sex Education Nativity Body Mass Index Current smoking status Health insurance status Usual source of care Unmet health care needs in past year Presence or history of chronic health condition(s) Limitations to physical ability Self assessed health

9 Patient Characteristics Chronic Hypertensive 1 Health Center Patients (n=1,464) Percent (%) Race/ethnicity Hispanic and Latino 32.0 NH White 27.5 NH Black 31.8 NH American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) 5.5 NH Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) 1.0 NH Asian 0.5 NH other 1.7 Age: Mean (SD) 51 years ( ) Female 62.3 U.S. born 77.1 Educational attainment High school graduate 50.7 Body Mass Index (BMI) 2 Overweight/Obese (25.0 or higher) 78.1 Current smoker (cigarettes) Patient was told on 2 or more separate clinical visits s/he had hypertension patients declined to provide BMI information Source: Primary Health Care Patient Survey 2009

15 Summary of Results There were no racial/ethnic disparities in: Receipt of hypertension control lifestyle counseling Adherence to hypertension control lifestyle counseling Controlled hypertension NH African Americans and NH Native Americans (AIAN) were more likely than NH whites to have a hypertension related emergency department visit or hospitalization in the preceding 2 years.

16 Limitations Patient Survey data are cross sectional. Association does not equate to causation. Self report acquiescence bias recall bias Race/ethnic comparisons are limited to Hispanic/Latinos, African Americans, and Whites. Sample sizes of other race/ethnic groups are small. Patient survey is conducted in English and Spanish.

17 Implications Health Centers are succeeding in providing equitable care across population groups. Health care access plays an important role in the control of chronic conditions like hypertension. More research is needed to better understand health services use in ethnic minority groups.
