Purpose: This study was conducted to confirm the factors affecting recipients' quality of life by two types of hypertension management, one was telemedicine provided by community health posts(CHPs) in a rural area, the other was traditional hypertension management by comparing patients' health related lifestyles, self-efficacy and health related quality of life. Methods: The study was conducted from February 1, 2015 through April 25, 2015 on 193 hypertension patients in 6 CHPs consisting of 98 patients in 2 CHPs running telemedicine and 95 patients in 4 CHPs running traditional hypertension management services. The data were analyzed and assessed with frequency, percentage, chi-square test and multiple regression. Results: Self-efficacy and health related quality of life were high for the subjects managed by traditional hypertension management services. Self-efficacy, age, hobby, balanced meals, more than 7~8 hours sleep and regular exercise, which affected the quality of life for recipients were explanatory in 45.9%(F=22.368, p<.001). Conclusion: When any services utilizing telemedicine are provided in the future, consideration of emotional aspects including self-efficacy and quality of life is recommended.
