AbstractTechnology on the cloud frameworks in healthcare data management and analytics has opened new horizons for public health research. Hypertension is a significant modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Nowadays, telemonitoring blood pressure (BP) has been suggested as an effective tool for BP control. However, elderly people always have difficulties when using electronic health monitoring devices at home. BP data capturing with cloud technology in elderly community centres under guidance and with healthcare provider alert function is a pioneer. In this study, the infrastructure of data collection is constructed on the cloud to capture behavioral data on BP meter use and BP readings. BP data will be generated by the daily use of BP measurement and uploaded to the cloud. All personal characteristics, electronic health records, BP data and call log with nurse can be encrypted and store on the cloud. The remote platform on the cloud can provide efficient analytic performance on huge volume of data with high velocity of data creation in a population-based study. Data mining on the BP measurement will help to better understand the ways to control hypertension. This platform will also be potentially used in other epidemiological studies in public health.
