Your patients have so much more on their minds than controlling their hypertension. While home blood pressure readings are more highly correlated with cardiovascular outcomes than in-office readings. Often, patients with hypertension don’t feel sick, and won’t adhere to self-monitoring devices. While more than two-thirds of Medicare patients have multiple chronic conditions, hypertension is among the most prevalent, and the easiest for patients to ignore, until they experience an emergency event.

Accurate and Easy-to-Use Devices for Blood Pressure Management

AMA Lists TimeDoc Health utilizes iBloodPressure, one of the most accurate on the American Medical Association’s US Blood Pressure Validated Device Listing (VDL™) website. The VDL was created to support the need for accurate and actionable BP measurements that can lead to appropriate hypertension treatment and improved blood pressure control, reducing the risk for cardiovascular disease.

Remote Monitoring

SET UP PATIENTS WITH CELLULAR ENABLED DEVICE

Cellular-enabled devices allow ALL patients to participate, not just those with Wi-Fi or smartphones. Devices can ship directly to the patient or be distributed from your health center and we can train you on device usage and best practices for self-monitoring.

ACTIONABLE DATA IN YOUR EMR

We integrate our web-based platform directly into your EMR, giving you full access to readings as they are automatically pushed into the patient dashboard. Our platform allows you to set up regular reporting, giving your health center powerful insights that are needed for semi-annual progress reports and additional data requirements to support your HTN Initiative evaluation and reporting activities.

CLINICAL GUIDANCE & SUPPORT

We support the engagement of non-physician team members with evidence-based clinical protocol, pathways, training, and call scripts for hypertension, cholesterol, weight management, and other modules to help with blood pressure management.
