Intervention

Intervention: A patient activation website that provides computer-tailored hypertension feedback. The website asks questions and provides feedback that highlights areas where their care adheres to guidelines and areas where their care does not, and encourages patients to ask questions during doctor visits that would lead to changes in their hypertension care. The feedback is based on standard guidelines for the treatment of hypertension and the feedback suggests specific questions that patients should ask during doctor visits, in order to receive higher quality care.

Control: A delayed treatment control. Control subjects got access to the website after completing the follow-up measures.
