Clinicians are developing guidelines for capture of health information from individuals and devices outside of the clinic environment, but current available standards for consistently capturing, representing, and analyzing patient-generated data in the EHR are lacking. Target: BP is a national initiative formed by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Medical Association in response to the rising incidence of uncontrolled blood pressure. In 2017, Target: BP released hypertension clinical guidelines that provide a basis for the development of interoperable data structures and decision support tools that can improve clinician’s ability to use and understand patient-generated blood pressure data. This session will describe the approaches, challenges, and opportunities in the development of semantically interoperable data capture for self-measured blood pressure monitoring (SMBP) and utilization of those data in a SMART on FHIR app to deliver more actionable readings to clinicians in their EHR.
