FutureWare Personal HypertensionTracker188.8.131.52 Description:
The FutureWare Personal HypertensionTrackerr application for PC and Palm maintains a history of daily blood pressure readings, which are displayed in a set of color-coded bar charts, which can be printed in tabular form, which can be faxed to a prescribing physician office, and optionally can be sent over a secure Internet connection to a prescribing physician for remote monitoring if the physician has the FutureWare MedWatch program. If medication is being taken, then the application can keep track of usage, prompting when a refill is needed, and open the default internet browser for prescription re-ordering if the issuing pharmacy has such capability. This is described more fully in the Prescription Usage Monitoring and the On-Line Prescription Re-Ordering sections. The application displays details the daily systolic and diastolic readings in a split bar-graph format, as well as the selected time period, and the maximum and minimum values for each over the selected period. The entering of readings is described in the Entering Blood Pressure Readings section. Positioning the mouse cursor over a bar will display that day's readings for quick reference. If a pulse rate was entered, then it will be displayed along with the systolic and diastolic values. The displayed readings scale can be selected for absolute values, or enhanced to highlight variations. A day for which there are no readings is indicated by an outlined blank bar. Double-clicking on one of these will prompt for the readings for that date.
