No Intervention: Control
Patients in the control group will receive usual care from their primary care physicians at HealthPartners Medical Group clinics.
Experimental: Telemonitors and pharmacy management
The telemonitoring intervention (TI) patients will receive a home blood pressure telemonitor and will work with a clinical pharmacist case manager to control elevated blood pressure. Patients will use their home telemonitors to read and send their blood pressures to their Pharmacist case manager, who will use phone meetings with the patient to make medication adjustments.
Other: Telemonitors and pharmacy management
Patients in the intervention arm will receive home blood pressure monitors, and will have individual hypertension case management from a medication therapy management pharmacist.
