Implementing and Expanding Self-Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring in SD

The South Dakota Department of Health – Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program is accepting applications from healthcare facilities to implement or improve upon a self-measured blood pressure (SMBP) monitoring program.

Healthcare facilities can utilize Target: BPCheck. Change. Control, or Million Hearts SMBP programs and guidance to:

  • Implement an SMBP program within their practice
  • Add additional patients to current SMBP program
  • Expand the SMBP program to additional providers or sites

Applicants may request up to $20,000 as commensurate with the scope and impact of the project, within the request for grant application budget. Up to $2,500 of an organization’s budget request may be allocated toward the purchase of blood pressure cuffs to be utilized through a loaner program.

Why focus on heart health?

  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and 2nd leading cause of death in SD
  • Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death in the U.S and 6th in SD
  • Overall, cardiovascular disease (CVD) accounts for 27.5% of all deaths in SD and 21.5% of those who die from CVD in SD are less than 65 years old.

Don’t miss this opportunity to change these statistics!
