Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Programme

As the first programme of PTEC, this Home Blood Pressure (BP) Monitoring Programme aims to enable patients with high blood pressure to better manage their conditions in the comfort of their home, with the help of simple technology and tele-consultations from the polyclinic.

The programme consists of:

Remote Monitoring

Patients will monitor their BP at home with a Bluetooth-enabled BP machine at least once a week and the readings will be shared with their polyclinic care team through the Health Discovery+ app.

Care Team Support

The care team will monitor patients' average BP readings on a monthly basis and contact the patient if his/her conditions are not well-controlled, or if there is a need to adjust medications. The care team will schedule a teleconsultation if there is no need for a polyclinic visit. During the tele-consultation, the care team will also provide advice and personalised education on lifestyle changes.

In-app Support

In between tele-consultations and polyclinic visits, the app would also provide you with timely and interactive advice through helpful reminders and notifications.
