A multidisciplinary medical and technology team at Cook County Health (CCH) developed and deployed a remote patient monitoring program. We also collaborated with the American Medical Association (AMA) on the implementation of a Pilot with the AMA MAP BP â¢(Measure Accurately, Act Rapidly, Partner with Patients to decrease high Blood Pressure) and included patients enrolled in our RPM program with diagnosis of hypertension. This is a program with evidence-based strategies that leverages telehealth and remote patient monitoring to improve blood pressure measurement accuracy, increase the use of evidence-based treatment and engage patients in self-management of their blood pressure.
