PTEC Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Programme

Singapore Citizens and PRs will enjoy a subsidised price of $151 for this two-year programme, which comprises a Bluetooth- enabled BP machine and subscription to the Health Discovery+ app. Your usual consultation, medication & lab tests will be charged separately.
There will be no refund if you drop out before the minimum two years and you will need to return the $75 subsidy on the Bluetooth-enabled BP Machine. We strongly encourage you to remain on this programme to better manage your condition.

​Yes, you can manually key in your BP readings and they will be transmitted to the polyclinic. However, we encourage you to learn to pair your BP machine, as it is more convenient and accurate to let the readings sync with the app automatically via Bluetooth.
