  Purpose

The goal of this project is to improve hypertension control at Kaiser Permanente Colorado (KPCO) by implementing a population-based multi-factorial intervention that uses home BP monitors that can download BP readings to KPCO's health records via internet, interactive voice response (IVR) technology, and multidisciplinary care team. Participants will be randomized to either the home blood pressure monitoring group receiving the multi-factorial intervention or the usual care group who will be receiving Kaiser standard of care. We will determine the proportion of patients in each group who achieve their target BP goals at 6 months, according to national clinical practice guidelines. The study hypothesis is that a higher proportion of patients with uncontrolled hypertension in the home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) group will achieve their target blood pressure compared to those in the usual care (UC) group.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • BP at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 348
Study Start Date: July 2008
Study Completion Date: July 2010
Primary Completion Date: July 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: Usual Care
The control group receiving usual care
Experimental: Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Group
Intervention group
Behavioral: Home Blood Pressure Monitoring
Home blood pressure readings are taken at least 3 times a week, uploaded to a Microsoft Health Vault account through American Heart Association Heart360 at least 1 time per week. Patients are followed by a clinical pharmacist, with physician oversight, who will make adjustments to antihypertensive medications or suggest additional medications using national JNC VII and KPCO hypertension guidelines.
Other Name: HBPM

Detailed Description:

STUDY OBJECTIVES:

Primary:

• To determine the proportion of patients in each group who achieve their target BP goals at 6 months, according to national clinical practice guidelines

Secondary:

The following parameters will be evaluated between groups:

  • Change in BP measures between baseline and at 6 months
  • Proportion of patients who are receiving antihypertensive treatments in accordance to national clinical practice guidelines
  • Adherence to hypertensive medication regimen during the 6-month follow-up period
  • Patient satisfaction with the care model.
