Summary

This project is a pilot study to evaluate the feasibility of patient registration and participation in the web-enabled American Heart Association (AHA) Heart360® Cardiovascular Wellness Center program (Heart360® program) in post-stroke patients provided with a home blood pressure monitor from the Medical University of South Carolina. Patients enrolled in the Heart360® Home Blood Pressure Monitoring pilot study will be provided with a standard Omron home blood pressure monitor. Patients will be taught how to use the monitor to measure and record their blood pressure values into their Heart360® online profile. The purpose of this study is to assess whether patients can successfully use the home monitor and Heart360® online program during the 6 week follow-up study period.
