Further study details as provided by Frederick North, Mayo Clinic:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Change in Systolic Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 months ]
    Average change in systolic blood pressure (top number of blood pressure reading) from baseline to 6 months.

  • Mean Change in Diastolic Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 months ]
    Average change in diastolic blood pressure (bottom number of blood pressure reading) from baseline to 6 months.

Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: March 2011
Study Completion Date: October 2012
Primary Completion Date: October 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Blood pressure with telemetry
Home blood pressure monitor with telemetry
Device: Blood pressure monitor with telemetry
Blood pressure monitor for home use with readings uploaded to a web server viewable by the diabetes care manager
Other Name: Ideal Life Blood Pressure Monitor
Active Comparator: Blood pressure without telemetry
Home blood pressure self monitor without telemetry.
Device: Home blood pressure monitor without telemetry
Self monitor of blood pressure without telemetry
Other Name: Omron blood pressure monitor

Detailed Description:
This is a randomized control trial, two arms with block randomization. Primary care patients with diabetes and elevated blood pressure randomized to intervention or control. Intervention arm: home telemonitoring using the Ideal Life blood pressure cuff and telephone or internet transmission device to transmit blood pressure information to the Primary care manager team with otherwise normal care manager care. Control arm: Omron (off the shelf) home blood pressure monitor (no transmission of data) and usual care. We will be comparing blood pressure control between groups and provider contacts.
