ECHO Colorado will launch “Integrating Telehealth Tools Into Primary Care” on May 22. The six-week series will focus on telehealth tools to monitor high blood pressure and cholesterol in primary care patients and is offered in partnership with Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and Denver Health and Hospital Authority.

Three health technology vendors have adopted the American Medical Association’s Integrated Health Model Initiative (IHMI) to improve the capture of clinically valid blood pressure data. The Self-Measured Blood Pressure Data Model is the first data model created under IHMI, an AMA-led effort to improve, organize and share health information among healthcare stakeholders. According to AMA, IHMI’s data model standardizes clinically relevant information for advanced blood pressure monitoring devices, helping to define what data to collect, select how to represent the collected data, as well as determine how to encode the data for easy transmission, exchange and retrieval.
