ASCVD Risk Estimator App Now Available


ASCVD risk estimatorA new mobile app, designed to help health care providers and patients estimate 10-year and lifetime risks for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), is now available for download. The ASCVD Risk Estimator, published jointly by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA), uses Pooled Cohort Equations and lifetime risk prediction tools. It is intended as a companion tool to the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk and the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Risk in Adults.

The guidelines and estimator were developed by the ACC/AHA Risk Assessment Guideline Working Group, which is co-chaired by Donald M. Lloyd Jones, MD/ScM, Director, Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (NUCATS) and David C. Goff, Jr. MD. The ASCVD Risk Estimator provides easy access to recommendations specific to calculated risk estimates. Additionally, the app includes readily accessible guideline reference information for both providers and patients related to therapy, monitoring, and lifestyle.
