Rural and minority populations are underrepresented in clinical research, likely because of travel barriers and financial resources required to participate in conventional studies.1 Digital technology holds promise to improve access to clinical studies,2 but limited evidence is available detailing the adoption of these methods in underserved populations. We describe our experience using digital technology for remote enrollment in a clinical study evaluating the use of home blood pressure (BP) telemonitoring for hypertension management.
