Digital Health Approaches for the Assessment and Optimisation of Hypertension Care Provision.

Although many aspects of our lives have been transformed by digital innovation, widespread adoption of digital health advancements within the health care sector in general, and for hypertension care specifically, has been limited. However, it is likely that, over the next decade, material increases in the uptake of digital health innovations for hypertension care delivery will be seen. In this narrative review, we summarise those innovations thought to have the greatest chance for impact in the next decade. These include provision of virtual care combined with home blood pressure (BP) telemonitoring, use of digital registries and protocolised care, leveraging continuous BP measurement to collect vast amounts of individual and population-based BP data, and adoption of digital therapeutics to provide low-cost scalable interventions for patients with or at risk for hypertension. Of these, home BP telemonitoring is likely the most ready for implementation, but it needs to be done in a way that enables efficient guideline-concordant care in a cost-effective manner. In addition, efforts must be focused on implementing digital health solutions in a manner that addresses the major challenges to digital adoption. This entails ensuring that innovations are accessible, usable, secure, validated, evidence based, cost-effective, and integrated into the electronic systems that are already used by patients or providers. Increasing the use of broader digital innovations such as artificial/augmented intelligence, data analytics, and interactive voice response is also critically important. The digital revolution holds substantial promise, but success will depend on the ability of collaborative stakeholders to adopt and implement innovative, usable solutions.
