Program Description:
This webinar was designed to increase awareness to hypertension in pregnancy and the associated morbidity/mortality experienced by women through the postpartum period. We will share our experience in developing a postpartum specific home telehealth/remote patient monitoring program from the research and clinical program perspectives. We will demonstrate a virtual example of how we conduct our patient interactions with the patient at home through the tablet provided to them by our institution. We hope to have a robust question and answer session with discussion on how other healthcare institutions may consider implementing such a program.
