Jackson Hinds Comprehensive Health Center is excited to announce its Hypertension Control Program, a part of the National Hypertension Control Initiative (NHCI). The program is instituted by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Office of Minority Health (OMH).
A key element of the program is remote patient monitoring (RPM), in which patients’ blood pressures will be monitored outside of the clinical setting.
Patients will transmit the readings through an application compatible with our electronic health record (EHR).
A member of the Hypertension Control Team will monitor blood pressure readings daily and provide appropriate instructions.
