Adherence is important for improved quality of life among hypertensive patients. Non-adherent hypertensive patients have been reported to be at more risk of suffering from and dying from stroke. Studies indicate that patients that fail to take their medication on time have a more than two times risk of dying after few years of taking the prescribed medicine to control hypertension (Christensen, et al., 2009). A Mobile web app designed to alert patients to take their medication improves African American males’ self- management for medication adherence. It aids in chronic disease management by improving patients confidence in adhering to prescribed medication to control blood pressure. I selected the topic from the school suggestions of topics for clinical Scholarly Projects driven by personal passion for increased quality of life among hypertensive African Americans.
Non-adherence to hypertension medication is prevalent among African American men (Lewis, Schoenthhaler, & Ogedegbe, 2012).The rate of non-adherence is unacceptably high in black men even when they have similar access to care and income as compared with their white counterparts. Pharmacy refill studies that measure adherence also confirm that they have considerably low adherence compared to whites. This occurs despite African American males having a good understanding of the potential benefits of adherence and the risks that emanate from non-adherence (Lewis, Schoenthhaler, & Ogedegbe, 2012).
