2) Summarize your findings in one sentence.
Results demonstrated that a simple and safe telehealth tool for patients with uncontrolled HTN is easily applicable in routine daily clinical practice, provides additional antihypertensive effect and improves patient-reported outcomes.
3) Which were the more important methods you used in this work? If it is not a traditional method you can briefly explain the concept of that methodology.
Most of the work was done due to preceding development a simple and safe telehealth tool with web-based interface and mobile application version.
