Context-aware patient guidance during blood pressure self-measurement

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

The importance of accurate measurement of blood pressure in the screening and management of hypertension during pregnancy is well established. Blood pressure levels can be measured manually by healthcare staff or by using a blood pressure self-measurement device, either at home or in the clinic. In order to be valid for diagnostic use the patient is required to follow a range of recommendations. However, these recommendations are not always followed. In an observational descriptive study we investigated the effect of introducing active patient guidance by providing contextaware feedback during the blood pressure self-measurement process. Preliminary results indicate that such active and context-aware guidance leads to more reliable measurements by inhibiting non-adherent patient behavior
