PharmaSmart Blood Pressure Tracker
How does the Smart Card work?
The PharmaSmart blood pressure Smart Card includes a memory chip, which means it "remembers" your previous
blood pressure readings. This allows you to track your blood pressure readings over
time. The information on your smart card is private and confidential. Ask your pharmacist
about obtaining your personal blood pressure Smart Card.
What do I need to know about the Blood Pressure Kiosk?
The PharmaSmart PS-2000 kiosk, found at all three
of our convenient locations , allows you
to reliably track your blood pressure over time. If you use a personal Smart Card,
the Kiosk will print out the average of your last 10 blood pressure and pulse readings,
along with the date of each reading. It will also provide an average of your most
recent 10 readings. This printed report can be shared with loved ones or your health
care providers to help better manage your health.
What is the on-line Blood Pressure Tracker™?
PharmaSmart's Blood Pressure Tracker™ web portal allows you to access all of your
Smart Card readings on-line. It also makes it easy for you to share your personal
Blood Pressure Tracker™ page with your loved ones or healthcare provider. Like the
PharmaSmart kiosk and the Smart Card, the Blood Pressure Tracker™ portal is easy
to use, and 100% confidential.
Why is blood pressure important?
1 in 4 people worldwide have high blood pressure, including 1 in 3 Americans. High
blood pressure is a top contributing factor to many serious health problems, including:
stroke, kidney failure, heart failure, heart attack, and even diabetes. Because
all of these can kill people, high blood pressure is often called "the silent killer."
Small changes in pressure can make a significant change in life expectancy, so it
is important for you to know your blood pressure, and keep it controlled.
Why should I keep track of my blood pressure?
It is normal for blood pressure to fluctuate from minute to minute. This makes it
challenging to accurately diagnose high blood pressure, and to be sure that once
treated, you have it under control. Our pharmacy partners, in teamwork with PharmaSmart,
can help make it easier for you and your doctor to manage your blood pressure.
