Self-Measured Blood Pressure Monitoring
Comparative Effectiveness of SMBP Monitoring Plus Additional Support Versus Usual Care (2 of 2)
There was no difference between SMBP monitoring with some form of additional support and usual care for number of health care encounters. Of the 8 studies that reported on health care encounters, 6 studies found no difference in number of visits, 1 found fewer visits, and 1 found more visits with SMBP plus additional support when compared to usual care. Inconsistency in findings and the low quality of the studies resulted in the strength of evidence being rated low for this finding.
