Healthcare found to be better with online help
Seattle Post-Intelligencer, June 25, 2008
A Seattle-based study has shown patients with online help controlled their high blood pressure more than twice as well as those who didn't have extra resources, and they did it with fewer doctor visits. The clinical trial checked whether monitoring blood pressure at home and having regular contact with a healthcare provider through the Internet helped patients lower their blood pressure. The study began in 2006, and involved 778 Group Health patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure.
