BETTER-BP (Behavioral Economics Trial To Enhance Regulation of Blood Pressure) is a phase II, single-center, prospective, pragmatic randomized clinical trial within the New York City Health and Hospitals (NYC-H+H) system and NYU Langone Family Health Centers. The trial will recruit from 3 NYC-H+H ambulatory clinics as well as NYU Langone Family Health Centers, and will use a lottery incentive program to promote adherence to antihypertensive medication that will be delivered via smartphone for 6 months. The trial will randomize 435 patients with hypertension determined to have poor adherence (<80% adherence with antihypertensive medication), in a 2:1 (intervention:control) ratio. Baseline enrollment will occur over 36 months with an expected 12 months follow-up per participant.
