Blood pressure home monitoring
The telehealth hypertension service allows clinicians to monitor patient’s blood pressure remotely. The patient uses a blood pressure device and using a choice of our communication channels relays the readings back to the clinician. Patients can choose to use SMS, an app, online or an automated telephone call.
If readings breach personalised thresholds, clinicians are notified and can step in as necessary with medical intervention.
Patient readings can be sent into the patient record for authorised health care professionals to view.
Studies have suggested that ‘white coat syndrome’ is real, showing blood pressure measurements taken by a doctor are 50 per cent less accurate than when taken at home.
