Playing for Prevention: Innovative Education for your Patients

It is estimated that 1 in 3 American adults have high blood pressure, and now face increased risks for chronic kidney disease, stroke, and heart attack/heart failure.

Given its severe impact on patient health, its high prevalence, and the low control rates (more than half of Americans with HBP do not have it under control), mHealth Games hopes to give a voice to this national health problem and improve the detection, awareness, prevention and treatment of hypertension and its consequences.

By supporting initiatives to improve patient outcomes, promote mobile engagement, and provide free education and services to patients and health care professionals, mHealth Games aims to advocate on behalf of all stakeholders with a focus on achieving fluency in the language of prevention.

This new game is an innovative twist on the standard "Hypertension Handout"
