The goal of the ECMSF Blood Pressure Cuff Program is to equip medically indigent patients in
Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties with at home blood pressure cuff monitors and to enable these patients
to have more control over their health through continuity of care.
According to US census reports, over 70,000 people in the two county area fall below the poverty level.
Studies indicate that people living in the lowest income neighborhoods had a greater risk of a major cardiac event
occurring over the next five years than those living in the highest income neighborhoods.
By partnering with local clinics and Physicians' offices, our blood pressure cuff programs helps these patients regularly check their blood pressure readings at home to help minimize cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
This will also reduce the amount of emergency department visits through continuity of care.
To date, the ECMS-Foundation has distributed 4 rounds of blood pressure cuffs to patients in need.
BP Cuffs are purchased as funds are raised - you can help us distribute more by donating directly to ECMS-Foundation!
