The 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.
PTEC Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Programme will benefit patients who want to better control their chronic conditions, but have busy lifestyles and/or are less ambulant. This programme is an impactful addition to our Telemedicine services. It enhances the quality of care, educates and enriches the health of our patients. With PTEC, these patients can self-manage their conditions to prevent disease progression and avoid complications.
It is a collaborative effort with MOH Office for Healthcare Transformation (MOHT) and the three Polyclinic Clusters - National Healthcare Group Polyclinics (NHGP), National University Polyclinics (NUP) and SingHealth Polyclinics (SHP), and supported by Integrated Health Information Systems (IHiS).
The New Patient Care Journey
Patients enrolled under the PTEC Home Blood Pressure monitoring programme will measure their blood pressure at home using a Bluetooth-enabled blood pressure device. The blood pressure readings are automatically transmitted through the patient’s mobile application to the respective Polyclinic care team. This monitoring allows high or low blood pressure readings to be flagged up for further action by the care provider. In addition, patients will receive helpful reminders and notifications to take their blood pressure readings at least once a week, as well as receive care support when required.
