mHealth Intelligence: Home-Based Remote Patient Monitoring Yields Highly Accurate BP Readings
A study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine found that home-based blood pressure (BP) measurements were more reliable and accurate than those taken in clinics or kiosks. The results of the study showed a high level of accuracy in the systolic BP measurement of members of the remote monitoring group. The low and high results of the clinic and kiosk group indicate an inadequate or excessive level of sensitivity for detecting hypertension. The results lend credibility to the ability of remote BP monitoring.
