Notes: CI = confidence interval, RR = rate ratio. Practice size determined as number of enrolled patients in the practice. Poisson regression used to model the rate of BP screening; number of recorded BPs was used as outcome, number of patient years follow-up per provider was used as offset; *n* = 79 care providers. Age and years since graduation were highly correlated; therefore only age was included multivariate model. Only variables with *p* value < 0.05 in bivariate model were included in the multivariate model. Due to high correlation between age and years since graduation, we only included age in multivariate model.
