Brief Summary:

Hypothesis 1: At the end of 9 months a higher proportion of patients randomized to the intervention group will achieve appropriate blood pressure control.

Hypothesis 2: At the end of 9 months a higher proportion of patients who randomized to the intervention group will report high adherence to their hypertension medications.
