The service involves entrusting the user with a device for the detection of home blood pressure values (with bluetooth wireless transmission or NFC Near Field Communication).
All the pressure values detected, both at home and on the move, are automatically sent, through smartphones or tablets, to the user’s personal health file.
Their progressive memorization allows the HTN cardiologist the accurate definition of cardiovascular risk through the evaluation of average values, transient peaks, pressure load, variability, differential pressure and average heart rate.
The service offers the possibility to:
carry out unlimited measurements at home and/or on the move of the pressure values
easily and permanently store all the pressure values detected
- compare them with those present in the database
- view value trends
- periodically receive the report from the HTN cardiologist
take advantage of the teleconsultation of a specialist cardiologist doctor 24 hours a day
take advantage of the printing of the report, always and immediately
issue the user with a personal password for viewing the data
request teleconsultation/ telereportation to the cardiologist on duty.
The advantages are represented by the 200s of being able to:
carry out checks in primary prevention for all those who have hypertensive familiarity, stress, obesity, kidney diseases etc…
carry out checks in secondary prevention (users with diabetes mellitus, cerebral stroke, dilated heart disease, etc…)
evaluate the effects of antihypertensive therapy.
The service has two possible variants:
- the pressure detection device can be rented by the healthcare professional to its users who do not have a smartphone (in this case the user periodically returns to the clinic to download all the values recorded at home)
it can also be activated through the use of blood pressure monitors already supplied to the clinics or to the user; in this case the pressure data are, from time to time, manually entered into the personal health dossier.
The telereport is printable within 24 hours while any related teleconsultation by HTN cardiologists is immediate.
The 2013 Guidelines of the European Society of Hypertension underline that the blood pressure values detected at home have a prognostic significance more predictive of cardiovascular accidents than the values detected in the clinic.
