  • Purpose of review Hypertension (HTN) is the most common chronic disease impacting over half the US adult population. Our current office-based model of care is failing in its ability to control blood pressure (BP) as only 44% of adult US hypertensives are achieving minimal levels of BP control (< 140/90 mmHg), leading to high rates of preventable cardiovascular events and death. Recent findings Reengineering care delivery using a fully digital platform combined with a dedicated team-based approach to HTN management has demonstrated superior BP control rates, very high levels patient acceptance, and the ability to better diagnose and treat masked and white coat HTN. A digital medicine program in the clinical care setting can be an effective and convenient mechanism of delivering HTN management, outperforming traditional office-based care, and is well accepted by patients.
