The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends self-measured blood pressure monitoring interventions to improve blood pressure outcomes in patients with high blood pressure.These interventions support and promote the use of personal blood pressure measurement devices. The CPSTF found sufficient evidence to support these interventions when used alone. They also found strong evidence supporting use with additional support —patient counseling, education, or web-based support.
