Deprescribing of antihypertensive preparations, a planned or situational process of withdrawal, replacement, and dose reduction, must be adequately monitored by the physician. Due to the current epidemiologic environment, eHealth and telemedicine monitoring may be the best means of control. This article deals with the basic issues of organizing telemedical monitoring of patients with chronic heart failure and arterial hypertension and their adaptation to the organizational conditions of the Russian Federation.
