Hypertension Virtual Care Program Overview

Program Objective

Codex Health has partnered with PSH and your healthcare provider to provide you support in managing hypertension (high blood pressure).

  • The Codex Virtual Hypertension Program aims to help people diagnosed with hypertension (high blood pressure) to achieve and maintain a target blood pressure (BP) of less than 130/80 mmHg. This target is based upon recommendations from the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA).
  • Codex Clinical Educators will support you with BP monitoring, medication management, lifestyle changes, and individualized education throughout the program. A care plan will be developed for you, and presented as a daily task list in the Codex developed, Allie app. Consider Allie your ally helping you stay on top of your health.
  • The Allie mobile app allows you to partner with your doctor and a Codex Clinical Educator to better health outcomes. By using the Allie app enables your healthcare teamprovider to has access to see all of your BP data and used by the healthcare team to make decisions with you about your care.
  • The program is designed to continue until your BP consistently measures less than 130/80 mmHg for a minimum of eight weeks. Based on your healthcare provider’s recommendation, you may be eligible to re-enroll in the program, if needed.

Blood Pressure Monitoring

  • To establish a baseline, or average, reading during the first week of enrollment, you will be asked to check your BP twice in the morning, one minute apart and twice in the evening, one minute apart (for a total of up to 12 measurements).
  • After establishing a baseline, you will be asked to measure BP once a day until your BP is less than 130/80 mm/Hg or less
  • It is important to take your readings daily and at the same time each day.
  • BP fluctuates over a 24-hour cycle, and changes when you are excited, nervous, active, and according to your body’s natural rhythms. Individual BP readings may vary widely, and a single high reading is not necessarily cause for concern. Having a consistent record of readings over time provides the best overall picture of your blood pressure. We look at patterns and averages to help guide clinical decision making.

Coaching Sessions

  • An essential part of the program is scheduling a monthly 15 minute coaching session to speak with the Codex Clinical Educator. Once monthly is the minimum, but you may schedule a session anytime you like. Coaching sessions are unlimited. You may also message the Codex Clinical Educator directly through the Allie app at any time.
  • During the coaching session, the Clinical Educator will answer your questions, review your BP data, discuss lifestyle interventions, monitor medication adherence and provide individualized education and support.
