Shake-up for blood pressure diagnosis backed by NICE

Comment

These latest suggested guidelines on home monitoring for patients with high blood pressure make interesting reading. Trials and the subsequent mainstream adoption of telehealth for monitoring patients predominantly with long-term conditions (LTCs) have continuously shown that home monitoring has the potential to reassure patients and give them confidence to self-manage their own conditions. As this latest story highlights, patient monitoring and technology is continually evolving towards the domestic environment, where patients are more relaxed and a more accurate evaluation of readings can be gathered.
