High blood cholesterol levels are a significant risk factor for coronary artery disease, the most common form of heart disease in the United States. Managing cholesterol by screening and controlling serum cholesterol levels is an effective way to reduce the occurrence and severity of new cardiac events in people that have already suffered a cardiovascular event. The results above measure the cholesterol screening of patients who had an acute cardiovascular event and whose LDL cholesterol was screened and controlled to less than 130 mg/dL in the year following the event. Reliant Medical Group scored in the top 10% nationally in cholesterol control of patients for each of the last four years.
