The aim of the study is to compare telemedical antihypertensive treatment based on home blood pressure monitoring and conventional antihypertensive treatment based on monitoring of blood pressure in the doctor's office.
We want to test the hypotheses that telemedical treatment is more effective in lowering blood pressure, provide better quality of life and is more cost-effective.
