About The Study: Results of this randomized clinical trial that included 4,100 patients with hypertension showed that a multicomponent intervention delivered on a web-based platform improved blood pressure control rate and lowered blood pressure level more than usual care alone. Such a telemedicine program may provide a new, effective way to treat patients with hypertension in the community and may generate public health benefits across diverse populations.
