2023 Together - PH325 - Hypertension RPM: A Patient Portal and Population Health Hypertension Intervention
UChicago Medicine started a remote patient monitoring (RPM) program utilizing existing technology to help patients improve blood pressure (BP) control using Bluetooth-connected BP cuffs, smartphones, the Epic patient portal and a medication titration protocol. Digital navigators use reporting to proactively identify patients with uncontrolled hypertension in our primary care clinic, provide them with a BP cuff and sync it to their mobile devices. A team of pharmacists and population health nurses review the BP values weekly, track medication adherence and titrate medications during weekly telephone outreach encounters until control is achieved, at which point patients graduate back to their primary care physician.
