The purpose

Monitoring and self-management are important components of effective chronic disease care and improved patient outcomes. With the rapid development of integration of mobile health technology (mHealth) into health care delivery services, mHealth intervention provides a great opportunity to improve the efficiency of chronic disease management. However, little is known about whether mHealth interventions can effectively impact the health and health care outcomes in underserved populations. This pilot study will assess the preliminary effectiveness of a mobile-based health intervention in an urban underserved community with a high incidence of hypertension. It is hypothesized that patients with hypertension will experience improved outcomes due to the use of a mHealth application compared with patients who are not using the application. The findings from this study will advance our understanding of the utility of mHealth interventions among underserved populations and generate evidence to support this new health care delivery approach in underserved urban communities. In this study, two hypotheses will be tested: 1. Hypertension patients using the mHealth application exhibit a greater decrease in blood pressure and better maintenance over a 6-month period compared to those who receive standard care. 2. Hypertension patients using the mHealth application will exhibit more effective self-management as compared to those who receive standard care.
