Abstract: 
AIM: To compare clinical efficacy of standard outpatient follow-up of hypertensive patients with efficacy of such follow-up with application of internet techniques and mobile telephone systems (ITMTS). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Two groups of hypertensive patients were examined: group 1 (n=97, 45% females, age 49 +/- 11 years) on one-year ITMTS follow-up; group 2 (n=102, 50% females, age 51 +/- 11 years) on standard one-year follow-up. Clinical efficacy was assessed by the rate of achievement and maintenance of target blood pressure, dynamics of modifiable risk factors (smoking, obesity) for a year. RESULTS: Withdrawal in group 1 was 36%, target blood pressure was achieved in 77% patients vs. 12% in group 2 (p < 0.001). CONCLUSION: Introduction of ITMTS technologies into outpatient clinics activity considerably raises efficacy of outpatient treatment of hypertensive patients.
