CareMore’s Hypertension Care program empowers and supports you in making lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and increasing your level of physical activity. If high blood pressure (hypertension) is left untreated, it can lead to life-threatening complications such as stroke and heart disease.
As a CareMore member, you will receive a comprehensive medical assessment (see Healthy Start) that will determine the specialized care you will need. You will have access to an extensive care team including a Cardiologist, Nurse Practitioner, Primary Care Physician, Registered Dietician and an Exercise Coach. If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure, the care team will recommend a home based electronic blood pressure monitor that transmits blood pressure readings to CareMore via your phone. Home blood pressure readings are taken, sent to CareMore electronically and then analyzed by your care team. You will also receive educational classes, have access to support groups and have periodic wellness checkups.

• Shape Up. Levels Down™ Exercise and Strength Training
