Project ImPACT: Hyperlipidemia

The Participants

The Participants


Patients enrolled in the project were either newly diagnosed with hyperlipidemia or were already receiving lipid-lowering medications but were poorly controlled (i.e., not yet at target NCEP lipid goal). Patients were identified through referrals from local health care providers, by the project pharmacists, or by patient self-referral. A total of 574 patients enrolled in the project and 397 completed the study period.


26 community pharmacies in 12 states provided care to patients as part of the project. Pharmacy types included independent, chain–professional, chain–grocery store, home health/home infusion, clinic, health maintenance and organization/managed care.
