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:

Remote Monitoring

Patients will monitor their BP control 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 VSM (Health Harmony) app. Care

Care Team Support

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

Chatbot Support

In between tele-consultations and polyclinic visits, patient can also activate the bilingual (English and Chinese) PTEC Chatbot, which provides timely and interactive advice through automated SMS. It also prompts patients who have missed taking their readings and guides them towards appropriate self-care and encouragement towards a healthier lifestyle
