    NYU Dataset

    Description

    This dataset was part of a study of how patients use the new feature in MyChart that allowed them to submit blood pressure readings taken from home. This dataset includes information on all patients whose physicians have enabled this new feature. It includes the patient's medical reference number, the name of the provider who approved the feature, the site of the provider, whether or not blood pressure measurements were submitted through MyChart, the blood pressure measurements if they were submitted, the last five blood pressure measurements recorded before the feature was approved, and all of the patient's blood pressure measurements taken during office visits.

    Description

    Project AsPIRE (Asian American Partnership in Research and Endowment) was a community-based participatory research program designed to develop, test, and evaluate a community health worker model designed to reduce cardiovascular disease and hypertension disparities among Filipino Americans living in New York and New Jersey. The project consisted of a pilot intervention and a 4-month full intervention. There are data available from the intervention, collected at baseline and at 4-months. Survey data is also available from the 8-month mark, although this data was collected for the full intervention only. The pilot intervention included 33 individuals with complete data (a total of 88 were recruited), and the full intervention included a total of 240 individuals with complete data (a total of 305 individuals were randomized into the intervention). Screening surveys with a limited amount of data were also collected between 2008 and 2012 in New York City and Jersey City, NJ and included a total of 1,312 Filipino individuals.

    Description

    These data were generated during a study that examined the feasibility of Harlem Health Advocacy Partners (HHAP), a place-based community health worker and health advocate initiative in public housing developments in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City. Data were collected in five public housing developments which were selected due to a high chronic disease burden. Data were first collected via random telephone survey of 1,633 individuals. This data informed a later interventional study, which included 370 individuals, 199 in the intervention group and 176 in the comparison group. The intervention consisted of community health workers and health advocates working in public housing. Variables collected throughout include age, gender, race/ethnicity, employment status, health insurance, self-reported general health, self-reported mental health, level of physical activity, smoker status, BMI, blood pressure, level of social connectedness, and specific health conditions including asthma, diabetes, hypertension, and depression.

    Description

    The Framingham Heart Study (FHS) is dedicated to identifying common factors or characteristics that contribute to cardiovascular disease (CVD). In 1948, an original cohort of 5,209 men and women between 30 and 62 years old were recruited from Framingham, MA. An Offspring Cohort began in 1971, an Omni Cohort in 1994, a Third Generation Cohort in 2002, a New Offspring Spouse Cohort in 2004 and a Second Generation Omni Cohort in 2003. Core research in the dataset focuses on cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. The data include biological specimens, molecular genetic data, phenotype data, samples, images, participant vascular functioning data, physiological data, demographic data, and ECG data.It is a collaborative project of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and Boston University.

    This data was part of an ecological momentary assessment (EMA) study to better understand the process by which psychological stress is linked to the development of hypertension. Data was collected in 2016 in New York City from 163 normotensive and untreated hypertensive subjects. Subjects underwent electronic diary-based assessment of daily stress exposure and rumination, as well as actigraphy and ambulatory BP monitory for 14 consecutive days.

    Description

    This dataset was generated from a 12-month two-arm cluster-randomized controlled trial, Counseling African Americans to Control Hypertension (CAATCH). The goal of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a multilevel, multicomponent, evidence-based intervention compared with usual care in improving blood pressure control among hypertensive blacks who receive care in community health centers. 30 community health centers were randomly assigned to the intervention group (n=15) or the usual care group (n=15). A total of 1,056 patients were enrolled in CAATCH, and patients completed face-to-face interviews with and had their blood pressure measured at baseline, six, and twelve months. Variables collected include changes in systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure from baseline to 12 months as well as change in physical activity, perfect change in weight, change in the number of daily servings of fruits and vegetables, and the proportion of participants with adequate blood pressure control at 12 months.

    Description

    This dataset was generated as part of a cluster-randomized, 2-arm trial to evaluate the effectiveness of a faith-based group-counseling therapeutic lifestyle intervention and motivational interviewed (MINT-TLC) vs. health education (HE) on black adults who attend churches in New York City. 32 churches with approximately 300 eligible adults were randomly assigned to either MINT-TLC or HE control, and data was collected at baseline, 3, 6, and 9 months. Data was collected on systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), intake of fruits and vegetables, level of physical activity and weight loss, sex, age, ethnicity, place of birth, language spoken at home, marital status, education, employment, insurance, religious affiliation, smoking, and alcohol use, National Cancer Institute Perfect Energy from Fat Screener, self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation for physical activity and fruits and vegetables, Charlson Comorbidity Index, Spiritual Locus of Control, Perceived Stress, Quality of Life (12-item Short-Form Health Survey), Patient Health Questionnaire 8-item Depression Scale, Medical Outcomes Study Social Support Survey, Hope Scale, and Morisky Medication Adherence Questionnaire, and waist circumference.
