PharmaSmart International integrates patient hypertension tracking portal


NEW YORK A company that designs and markets blood pressure monitors has integrated with an online health information storage service.

PharmaSmart International announced Wednesday the integration of its patient hypertension tracking portal, Blood Pressure Tracker, with Microsoft HealthVault, allowing users to access and share blood pressure readings from PharmaSmart’s network of pharmacy-based health kiosks.

“PharmaSmart, along with our retail pharmacy partners, is committed to offering the hypertensive patient a more convenient, easy-to-use and affordable way to track and manage their blood pressure between visits to the doctor,” PharmaSmart president Fred Sarkis said. “Our patient with HealthVault makes it easier for millions of Americans to track their blood pressure and then share that information with their family members or healthcare provider.”

Users can obtain a “Smart Card” from a pharmacist, test their blood pressure and access readings online with Blood Pressure Tracker, copying their data to their HealthVault record.

“PharmaSmart and their retail pharmacy partners offer an innovative approach in the management of hypertension,” Microsoft Health Solutions Group director James Mault said. “Aligning HealthVault’s capability with PharmaSmart’s pharmacy-based solutions improves the integration of blood pressure data with other wellness information and delivers information at the point of care.”
