Time is saved by no longer having to perform in-clinic BP measurements. Empower your patients to properly track their home BP measurements, which are prognostically superior to clinic BP readings. Using home BP telemonitoring in your practice saves up to 15 minutes per visit (Hammersley et al. PLoS Med 2020), allowing more patients to be seen, and increasing revenue.
Sphygmo is much more than just a BP and glucose tracking application, it’s a full telemonitoring platform that allows you, as a healthcare provider, to remotely and securely monitor patient BP, heart rate, glucose, weight, pulse oximetry, respiratory rate, and temperature.
It facilitates care in accordance with US, Canadian and international best practice guidelines for blood pressure and glucose management.
Using our patent-pending Swipe Averaging ™ feature, mean blood pressure and glucose are calculated instantly by simply clicking and dragging over the relevant calendar days. This eliminates the need to perform manual averaging of individual patient measurements, which is cumbersome and time-consuming.
Blood Pressure Monitoring & Management Following Best Clinical Practice
In-clinic BP measurements are inaccurate in up to 40% of patients because of the white coat effect (in-clinic BP is spuriously high leading to unnecessary treatment) or masked effect (in-clinic BP is spuriously low causing failure to up-titrate therapy). Home BP monitoring is recommended by all global clinical practice guidelines to ensure accurate assessment.
The Sphygmo virtual care platform, with our patent-pending Swipe Averaging™ feature allows you to instantaneously summarize data over any time period in a guideline concordant manner. Simply swipe over the days the readings were taken to determine overall, morning, and evening BP over a given calendar interval.
These calculated BP series can be saved and easily compared over time (for example, to guide drug titration). Sphygmo also provides assessments and comparisons of morning BP versus evening BP and postural variance in BP.

Glucose Monitoring & Management
Sphygmo also summarizes glucose data following best practice. Many patients with diabetes only take readings once a day. Our remote monitoring system includes a patent-pending Swipe Averaging™ feature allows you to ‘synthesize’ a typical day of glucose readings if your patient only takes one reading daily. Instruct your patient to take their single daily readings at different times each day, and then simply swipe over several days or weeks to instantaneously determine a typical day of glucose readings.
It has never been easier to follow clinical practice guidelines. Healthcare providers interested in signing up, receiving a new ‘link code’, or trialing the Sphygmo virtual care platform can email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
