WITHINGS PILOT PROJECT - CONNECTED HOME BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING
By Withings and AMGA
Withings teamed up with the American Medical Group Association (AMGA), one of the leading medical associations in the USA. As part of their Foundation's Measure Up/Pressure Down® hypertension campaign, Withings and the AMGA spent 18 months studying how home blood pressure monitoring might help achieve blood pressure control. The results of the project are striking: blood pressure control rates went from 38.6% to 70.0%. Also, doctors declared that connected home blood pressure monitoring improved patient compliance and the doctor-patient relationship.
