This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Göteborg University Identifier:
First received: January 11, 2012
Last updated: September 14, 2016
Last verified: September 2016
The purpose of this study is to examine if a mobile phone-based self-report system, using the patient's own mobile phone, will improve adherence to treatment of hypertension and lead to personal involvement of the patient in the treatment.

Condition Intervention
Hypertension Device: Mobile phone-based self-report system, electronic Patient-Reported Outcomes Measure (e-PROM)

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Mastery and Autonomy in Management of Hypertension With a Mobile Self-report System

Further study details as provided by Göteborg University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Adherence to antihypertensive medication [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    Adherence to antihypertensive medication will be checked through a question in the cell phone and evaluation of patient´s use of antihypertensive medication will be checked from the National Prescribed Drug Register of drugs. Twenty patient-physician/nurse consultations will be audio/video-recorded at regularly scheduled appointments to obtain authentic evidence of the use of the self-reports in clinical practice. The outcomes will include blood pressure measurement, registration of self-reported symptoms and discourse analyses.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Systolic blood pressure [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    Change in systolic blood pressure

Enrollment: 51
Study Start Date: March 2012
Study Completion Date: June 2012
Primary Completion Date: June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Self-report Device: Mobile phone-based self-report system, electronic Patient-Reported Outcomes Measure (e-PROM)

To test an electronic Patient-Reported Outcomes Measure (e-PROM) intended to assess patients' daily perceptions of symptoms and wellbeing, as well as self-measured blood pressure, treatment side-effects and medicine intake;

  • Explore patient interactions (learning and understanding) with an internet-reporting system providing structured feedback of e-PROM results to examine if such feedback is useful in improving adherence;
  • Explore patient-physician/nurse interactions to examine if structured feedback of e-PROM results serves as a useful complement to support consultations regarding treatment monitoring and adherence.
