New! CPSTF Recommends Interactive Digital Interventions to Control High Blood Pressure

The Community Preventive Services Task Force(CPSTF) recommends the use of interactive digital interventions to improve blood pressure control in patients with high blood pressure.
  • Content must be accessible through a computer, smartphone, telephone, or other hand-held device.
  • The digital component must be interactive (i.e., patients enter personal data or make choices).
  • Patients must receive personally relevant, tailored information and feedback that can be provided without direct input from a health professional.
  • Digital content may be provided as a computer program, a web-based program, or an application (app) that can be used on- or offline.
  • Interventions may include additional activities such as self-measured blood pressure monitoring, counseling, or follow-up from a health professional.
