CONtrolling Disease Using Inexpensive IT - Hypertension in Diabetes
Sponsored by University of Massachusetts, Worcester
This project will develop and test a low-cost approach to using health information
technology and home monitoring aimed at improving care for chronic conditions, with low
barriers to adoption in a wide variety of settings - from large group practices using
state-of-the-art electronic health records to small practices with no more than a computer
with internet access. Success will lead to a cost-effective approach to improving control of
hypertension, both among individuals with diabetes and among non-diabetics, which can make a
substantial contribution to the health of the population of the United States as improving
hypertension control is estimated to have a greater population health benefit than most
other health interventions. Success will also set the stage for adaptation of this
intervention to a variety of other chronic health conditions and further substantial
improvements in the health of millions of Americans.
