What’s the Problem?

The problem is uncontrolled high blood pressure, or hypertension.  It’s the biggest health problem out there today.
  • 100 million Americans have it.
  • 2/3 of seniors have it.
  • For women over 75, 80% have it.
Chances are, someone in your family has it.
And it’s dangerous!  It’s the leading cause of:
  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
And it’s the #1 leading contributor to early death.

What’s the Solution?

There are lots of ways to help with hypertension, but studies show that daily monitoring of your blood pressure, with continued interaction with our nursing staff, can DOUBLE the rate of control.
It’s called REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING, or RPM. Here’s how it works:
1) You measure your blood pressure daily.
2) Our clinical team talks to you throughout the month to monitor your blood pressure.
3) When issues are detected, we connect you with your clinical care team.
Together, we solve blood pressure problems when they are small, before they become BIG!

How Can I Get It?

It’s easy.

Or, call your Smith Medical Care Team.
Then:
  • We’ll send you a digital blood pressure cuff.
  • We’ll show you how to use it.
  • We’ll develop a specific care plan to help you manage your blood pressure.
  • Our nursing team will stay in touch with you throughout the month to work that plan.
  • If problems arise, we’ll connect you with your Smith Medical Care Team.
Together, we can control your blood pressure!  You can live a healthier life!

How Much Does it Cost?

For some patients, the co-pay is zero.  For others, it may be as high as $20 a month.  Check with your insurance provider to find out.
Would you pay a few dollars a month to control your life-threatening uncontrolled high blood pressure?  We hope so.  Ask your family what they think!
