Abstract
The percentage of patients treated for hypertension with a well-controlled blood pressure (< 140/90 mmHg) remains disappointedly low, in general way below 50 %, despite all national and international recommendations. Among the causes explaining this insufficient control, therapeutic inertia has been identified as an important determinant, which unfortunately did not improve over the last 10‑20 years. Patients' empowerment through home blood pressure monitoring and perhaps self-titration according to a well pre-specified scheme supported by telemedicine could represent news avenues to fight against therapeutic inertia.
