Consumer digital health company Livongo Health today announced the first cellular-enabled blood pressure monitoring system in the U.S.
Cellular connectivity allows for easy checking and reporting from home, eliminating the so-called “white coat” syndrome that leads to unnecessary prescriptions for high blood pressure, the company said in a prepared statement. Nearly 65% of people already using Livongo for Diabetes also have hypertension, so an integrated approach may make it easier for people who are managing multiple conditions to stay healthy. Early results from some of Livongo’s most innovative self-insured employers have shown meaningful health improvements for people with hypertension, according to a company analysis.
