The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends self-measured blood pressure monitoring interventions when used alone to improve blood pressure outcomes in patients with high blood pressure. Interventions support and train patients to use validated — usually automated — blood pressure monitoring devices in familiar settings, typically their homes. Patients share blood pressure readings with their healthcare providers, often with team-based care, and these measurements are monitored and used in treatment decisions.
