Patient interaction phenotypes with an automated remote hypertension monitoring program and their association with blood pressure control: observational study.
Researchers explored the unique phenotypes of patient interactions with an automated text messaging platform for blood pressure (BP) monitoring and to estimate associations between interaction phenotypes and BP control. Through a secondary analysis of data from a randomized controlled trial for adults with poorly controlled hypertension, they identified unique interaction phenotypes among patients engaging with an automated text message platform for remote BP monitoring; only the minimalist communication style was associated with achieving target BP. They recommended identifying and understanding interaction phenotypes to tailor future automated texting interactions and design future interventions to achieve better BP control.

New approaches to evaluating and monitoring blood pressure.
The authors reviewed the current literature on mobile health technologies and novel diagnostic and management protocols and made recommendations on how to incorporate these innovations into practice. They recommend collaboration between device designers and clinical researchers to develop rigorous clinical trials to test cardiovascular outcomes associated with emerging technologies.
