About Smart Blood Pressure Monitors

Blood Pressure Monitors can now track blood pressure and heart rate from the comfort of a patient's home. There are many options available for professionals and consumers, but not all have connectivity options to sync patient data. Smart devices help you monitor vitals and ensure a patient is on track with digital, real-time readings.


Smart blood pressure monitors can simplify at-home patient care with real-time readings, without the need to text, message, or call to get patient data. Monitors connect wirelessly to help you keep tabs on a patient's care journey, with options for Bluetooth or cellular connectivity. In most cases, once the device is linked patients take readings as instructed and their readings are automatically transmitted or easily sync.


Connected devices can even bridge the gap between in-office visits, making caring for patients easier and more cost-effective. Medicare RPM codes can cover the cost of these at-home blood pressure monitors, reviewing transmitted data, and more. Learn more about maximizing RPM code reimbursement.


Most smart blood pressure monitors on the market connect wirelessly using Bluetooth, with some options for cellular-connected devices. Bluetooth-connected devices often connect using a smartphone or tablet and sync to either the provided app or can be integrated with another healthcare app. Cellular-connected devices make set-up a breeze with automatic data transmission and no device linking necessary. See below for options that might work for you or your program!
