Follow-Up The frequency of follow-up visits will depend on the overall risk category of the patient as well as on the level of blood pressure. Once the goals of therapy have been reached, including the control of other risk factors and the achievement of goal blood pressure, the frequency of visits can be reduced considerably, particularly if self-measurement of blood pressure at home is encouraged. New technologies for tele-transmission of home blood pressure values to the physician’s office may further help a more effective follow-up.
