Description Uncontrolled home blood pressure is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular events, stroke, and all-cause mortality, independent of office BP [USPSTF]. By implementing a process for initiating home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM), we hope to improve BP control for our hypertensive patients, thereby improving overall health and quality of life and decreasing health care costs.
