This trial has been completed.
|Sponsor||Wayne State University|
|Collaborator||Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation|
|Start date||October 2013|
|End date||June 2015|
|Trial size||150 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02069015, BCBSMF 1956.11|
The primary aim of the study is to determine if enhanced discharge from the emergency department will improve blood pressure control and self-care management. Enhanced discharge will include a hypertension intervention delivered by a touch-screen kiosk over a three month period.
|Endpoint classification||efficacy study|
|Intervention model||parallel assignment|
Blood pressure control
time frame: Baseline to ninety days
Patient activation measure (PAM)
time frame: Baseline to 90 days
Male or female participants from 18 years up to 89 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Present with uncontrolled blood pressure to the emergency department (>140/90 for non-diabetics and >130/80 for diabetics) - Self-reported history of hypertension Exclusion Criteria: - End-stage renal disease - No history of hypertension - Do not present with uncontrolled blood pressure
|Official title||Achieving Blood Pressure Control Through Enhanced Discharge|
|Principal investigator||Julie A Gleason-Comstock, PhD|

To control for medication effects in achieving blood pressure control, both groups will receive similar blood pressure medication while actively participating in the study.|
