No Intervention: Usual Care
Standard care as provided by primary care physician.
Experimental: Adherence Intervention
9 adherence counseling sessions with a health coach
Behavioral: Adherence Intervention
Patients randomized to the AI group will participate in 9 sessions with bilingual Health Coaches who will utilize a culturally tailored adherence checklist to identify patient's specific medication adherence barriers. Based on the patient's responses, the Health Coach will then engage in targeted patient-centered counseling to assist patients in developing individualized self-monitoring strategies to overcome these barriers and improve adherence behaviors.
- Medication adherence [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Medication adherence will be assessed with an electronic monitoring device (EMD). Adherence is defined as the scheduling adherence metric, which is the proportion of days in which a patient takes their medication correctly divided by the total number of days that s/he is expected to take them in that period.
- Blood pressure [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Within-patient change in blood pressure is the difference between the baseline and systolic and diastolic BP readings at 6 months
