Hypertensive BP Management
A randomized clinical trial measured the effects of pharmacist case management guided by remote monitoring on BP control in patients at 6 and 12 months, with post-intervention follow up at 18 months. One group participated in telehealth intervention; the second received care from a primary care physician.
The telehealth intervention involved the use of a home BP monitor that transmitted readings to a pharmacist case manager.
