Call to Action on Use and Reimbursement for Home Blood Pressure Monitoring

 

  • This paper describes the important role for home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM), proper technique and recommended equipment, target goals for treatment, and patient populations for which HBPM is especially useful.
  • Home blood pressure monitoring should become a routine component of blood pressure measurement in the majority of patients with known or suspected hypertension.
  • HBPM has the potential to improve the quality of care while reducing costs, and should be reimbursed.
