High blood pressure improves with simple web tracker, Kaiser study shows
Patients who used an internet-based tracking program to watch their high blood pressure reached their improvement goals far more often than a control group, in a study that could provide a road map to the majority who fail to manage their condition.
Patients who used web-based software and were monitored by pharmacy specialists who could adjust their medication reached their blood pressure goal 54 percent of the time after six months, a study led by Kaiser Permanente Colorado said. The control group, which did not receive the extra monitoring, reached goals only 35 percent of the time, the study said.
