Hill-Rom (NYSE:HRC) said it is entering the home monitoring field as its subsidiary Welch Allyn launches its Home Hypertension program.

The program will allow patients to monitor their health at home using Welch Allyn’s home blood pressure monitor, which can sync to a smartphone app to pursue healthy blood pressure goals. The smartphone app is available on both Apple (NSDQ:AAPL) iOS and Google (NSDQ:GOOG) Android devices, the company said.

The system will also transmit data to clinicians via the free Clinical Portal, Chicago-based Hill-Rom said, so managing physicians can monitor patient compliance against treatment recommendations and maintain organized and accurate information.

“The statistics show that monitoring blood pressure within the home can have true lifesaving potential. The Welch Allyn Home Hypertension Program demonstrates our commitment to innovation, patients and their caregivers with easy-to-use technology and the accuracy found in our multi-parameter hospital-grade monitors,” Front Line Care prez Alton Shader said in a prepared release.
