In Hypertension research : official journal of the Japanese Society of Hypertension
Awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension are of the utmost importance in conquering stroke and cardiovascular disease. To reduce the global burden of hypertension, the Japanese Society of Hypertension (JSH) established the "JSH Future Plan" based on an increasing need to transform the strategy for combating hypertension. In addition to energizing conventional approaches in basic, translational, and clinical research, the application of rapidly evolving digital health technologies and artificial intelligence to hypertension healthcare and research (digital hypertension) holds promise for providing further insights into the pathophysiology and therapeutic targets and implementing predictive, personalized, and preemptive approaches in clinical practice. With great potential to revolutionize the landscape of hypertension, digital hypertension has some technical, legal, ethical, social, and financial issues to overcome. Given the multidisciplinary framework, digital hypertension requires comprehensive and strategic collaboration among industry, academia, and government to move forward toward the goal of "Future Medicine".
