We are grateful to Obara and colleagues  for having brought to our attention their previous work and for suggesting a potential solution to the lack of quality in hospital blood pressure (BP) measurement [2–5]. As we mentioned in our recent article , some strategies including routine monitoring in addition to education should be tempted, because education alone is not likely to solve the problem in the short-term. Therefore, and because we definitively need to reduce physician’s burden and have the proper time and attention devoted to BP measurement, we absolutely agree that it might be worthy to experiment with alternative strategies, such as the introduction of home BP measurements and self-measurements within the hospital [6,7].
