Hypertension remains an important public health challenge in the United States because it increases the risk for cardiovascular disease. Effective blood pressure management has been shown to decrease the incidence of stroke, heart attack, and heart failure (1–3). This report presents updated estimates for the prevalence and control of hypertension in the United States for 2015–2016. Trends in hypertension prevalence and control from 1999–2000 through 2015–2016 are also presented.

Recent mobile and automated audiometry technologies have allowed for the democratization of hearing healthcare and enables non-experts to deliver hearing tests. The problem remains that a large number of such users are not trained to interpret audiograms. In this work, we outline the development of a data-driven audiogram classification system designed specifically for the purpose of concisely describing audiograms. More specifically, we present how a training dataset was assembled and the devel...

The use of electronic processes and communication technologies to provide more efficient healthcare services and improve the quality of care is defined as e-health. Among all the possible e-health services the most popular and widely distributed among healthcare professionals and the general public are those based on telemedicine and mobile health (m-health). These applications allow the exchange of medical information from one site to another, mainly through the Internet, and are used to provid...

Hypertension is the most common cardiovascular disease, affecting nearly 30% of adults, and it is associated with an increased risk of morbidity and mortality. The association between cancer and hypertension is well documented, especially in the era of highly effective newer chemotherapeutic agents, such as vascular endothelial growth factor signaling pathway (VSP) inhibitors. Hypertension is relatively common in cancer patients and its prevalence, severity, and response to treatment varies depe...
