Abstract

Pedia BP, a free smartphone application, was developed to improve evidence-based clinical practice by simplifying the process of interpreting a pediatric blood pressure measurement. We implemented this application in 2 international community-based programs in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. During well-child checks of 389 children, nurse practitioner students observed an increase in the number of initial elevated blood pressure readings. With the use of health care informatics technology, like the Pedia BP program, pediatric hypertension may be better interpreted and ultimately managed.
