Home Blood Pressure Telemonitoring With Remote Hypertension Management in a Rural and Low-Income Population

The 2017 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association blood pressure (BP) guideline provides a Class IA recommendation for the use of home BP monitoring, team-based care, and telehealth strategies to improve BP control among patients with hypertension.1 However, most studies have been conducted in integrated health systems among White populations with higher socioeconomic status. This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and effectiveness of home BP telemonitoring with remote hypertension management among a predominately rural and low-income population.
