Automated calls help patients in under-developed countries manage blood pressure, U-M study finds
Date:10/31/2012

e and e-Health.

Despite high poverty levels in both Honduras and Mexico, up to 70 percent of the population has a cell phone making it an instrumental tool to improve access to health monitoring and information, Piette says. The telehealthcare model had the most successful outcomes among people who had limited literacy averaging just six years of formal education and who lived on an average income of $2,900 a year.

Hypertension is a leading cause of the global epidemic of cardiovascular diseases and is a top health issue in Latin America where more than 100 million adults are hypertensive and rates among men are the highest in the world. Two-thirds of people with high blood pressure live in low and middle income countries.

"Our work provides evidence that this model of telehealthcare can deliver meaningful services to patients in remote areas of the world lacking access to health services," says Piette, who is also senior research scientist with the Veterans Affairs Ann Arbor Healthcare System. "We hope to further study how this model helps with other conditions such as diabetes or depression."
