Using in -office blood pressure measurements only can limit provider in effectively managing hypertension. Using home blood pressure measurements can be an economical way to provide longitudinal data. Home and ambulatory blood pressure measurements can reduce the effects of white coat hypertension or masked hypertension, reduce the number of primary care visits, and increase compliance with blood pressure management therapies. The goal of this literature review is to determine the accuracy of home and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring compared to measurements in the clinical setting for more effective hypertension management in the rural primary care setting.
