Heka BP+ FAQs
HekaHealth and Allscripts are partnering with your physician to test a connected health solution that allows you to take blood pressure measurements at home and have them transmitted to your physician. This will provide your physician with easily accessible blood pressure measurements that may be used to diagnose, monitor or treat your high blood pressure. If you already have already been diagnosed with high blood pressure and are being treated, these blood pressure measurements can allow your physician to make changes to your treatment plan between office visits.
