3a. Project Scope
Develop a FHIR Implementation Guide to represent Self-measured Blood Pressure Using A Remote Monitoring Device (SMBP). Goals are to:
Meet clinical criteria and gain widespread adoption in support of AMA IHMI mission
Reduce variability in the expression of meaning
Ability to compute logical subsumption and equivalence across terminology and information models (experimental)
Leverage existing tools, team strengths, and work within internally established AMA timelines
This scope focuses on clinician guided remote monitoring programs not consumer initiated monitoring
Uncontrolled Blood Pressure
About 85 million adults (approximately 1 in 3) in the United States have high blood pressure, a contributing factor to major health conditions including heart attack, heart failure, stroke, and kidney failure. Research also shows that in 45.9% of those with high blood pressure the condition is not controlled—36.7 million people!
Costs Beyond Patient Health
It is estimated that high blood pressure costs the country $48.6 billion each year, including health care services, medications, and missed days of work.
There are new opportunities to use remote monitoring outside the clinic.
Improving Health Outcomes: Target BP Program
Helps health care organizations, at no cost, improve BP control rates through an evidence-based quality improvement program and recognizes organizations committed to improving BP control
MEASURE blood pressure accurately, every time
Enable Patient Self‑Measurement
Patients can take an active role in their treatment by monitoring their own BP readings outside of the clinical setting.
SMBP can also help providers better diagnose high BP and effectively manage patients.
