The goal of this project is to improve hypertension control at Kaiser Permanente Colorado (KPCO) by implementing a population-based multi-factorial intervention that uses home BP monitors that can download BP readings to KPCO's health records via internet, interactive voice response (IVR) technology, and multidisciplinary care team. Participants will be randomized to either the home blood pressure monitoring group reciving the multi-factorial intervention or the usual care group who will be receiving Kaiser standard of care. We will determine the proportion of patients in each group who achieve their target BP goals at 6 months, according to national clinical parctice guildelines. The study hypothesis is that a higher proportion of patients with uncontrolled hypertension in the home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) group will achieve their target blood pressure compared to those in the usual care (UC) group.
• To determine the proportion of patients in each group who achieve their target BP goals at 6 months, according to national clinical practice guidelines
The following parameters will be evaluated between groups:
- Change in BP measures between baseline and at 6 months
- Proportion of patients who are receiving antihypertensive treatments in accordance to national clinical practice guidelines
- Adherence to hypertensive medication regimen during the 6-month follow-up period
- Patient satisfaction with the care model.

Recent data from randomized clinical trials and updates to hypertension guidelines warrant a review of the literature for the diagnosis and management of hypertension in the clinic setting. Although t...
Paper home blood pressure (HBP) charts are commonly brought to physicians at office visits. The precision and accuracy of mental calculations of blood pressure (BP) means are not known.
The authors evaluated differences in the reliability of home blood pressure measurements taken in the morning, before dinner, and at bedtime. Forty-eight patients with hypertension (age range, 50-89 y...
Phenomenon where increased BLOOD PRESSURE readings taken in non-clinical settings (e.g., HOME BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING) do not replicate in clinical settings.
Method in which repeated blood pressure readings are made while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It allows quantitative analysis of the high blood pressure load over time, can help distinguish between types of HYPERTENSION, and can assess the effectiveness of antihypertensive therapy.
Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.
A condition of markedly elevated BLOOD PRESSURE with DIASTOLIC PRESSURE usually greater than 120 mm Hg. Malignant hypertension is characterized by widespread vascular damage, PAPILLEDEMA, retinopathy, HYPERTENSIVE ENCEPHALOPATHY, and renal dysfunction.
The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.
