The start of vaccinations against COVID-19 have begun around the world bringing hope for an end to the pandemic in 2021. With remote care and telemedicine emerging as highly effective during the pandemic, the future will certainly continue to rely on home health and data gleaned from wearables.
Supporting this, a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found one week of home blood pressure (BP) monitoring to be more reliable than ambulatory or office BP in diagnosing hypertension and its associated risk of cardiovascular disease.
To close out a 2020 on a high note, we are excited to welcome two key leaders to our team, Steven Kesten, MD who joins as Chief Medical Officer and Mark Gorelick, PhD, who joins as Chief Product Officer. From everyone on our team, we wish you a happy, healthy, and successful new year!
Stay healthy, stay strong,
Hypertension is the world’s leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease but many people do not know that they have blood pressure. With home monitoring becoming more widely used, a new study from the Journal of the American College of Cardiology compared office blood pressure (OBP), ambulatory BP (ABP), and home BP (HBP) to assess which is best for diagnosing hypertension. They found that home BP was more reliable and also required fewer resources, time, and personnel. Read the full study here.
