Purpose of Review: To summarize available data on digital health strategies for the prevention and management of hypertension, discussing the state-of-the-art, current limitations, and future perspective of this approach. Recent Findings: Technology is developing at a fast pace and is providing a number of novel solutions for cardiovascular patients, in particular in the field of digital health. Even if the benefit of these approaches is intuitive, the methodological heterogeneity of the available studies and their small sample size have made it difficult to provide robust evidence regarding the usefulness and cost-effectiveness of digital health technologies. Recently, studies with larger sample sizes and some meta-analyses have provided more convincing data on the favorable impact of such strategies. Summary: Digital health solutions may offer a chance to improve primary prevention and for timely diagnosis and effective management of hypertension. Results from small studies are promising, but there is a strong need for larger, long-term, and well-designed clinical trials to make these novel solutions really applicable in real-life patients’ care.
