New care pathway for expectant mothers involving use of an app for monitoring high blood pressure at home
Home monitoring of hypertension in pregnancy, or HaMpton, is a new care pathway developed by the maternal fetal medicine team at St George's Hospital, London.
This pathway involves the use of an innovative smartphone app for monitoring high blood pressure at home. The app alerts women if they need to attend the hospital, and it also links with a hospital computer system where the data can be monitored by clinicians in real time. HaMpton empowers women to be involved in their own care, reduces the number of hospital visits, and has achieved excellent patient and staff satisfaction.
