ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus

ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus is an update to the American College of Cardiology ASCVD Risk Estimator that uses recent science and user feedback to help a clinician and patient build a customized risk lowering plan by estimating and monitoring change in 10 year ASCVD risk.

Use the app to:

  • Estimate a patient's initial 10-year ASCVD risk using the pooled cohort equation

  • Receive an individualized, risk-based, intervention approach

  • Project the impact of specific interventions on a patient's risk

  • Guide clinician-patient discussion around customizing an intervention plan

  • Update risk at follow-up based on a patient's response to therapy using the Million Hearts Longitudinal model

Advice from the app is derived from the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce ASCVD Risk and the 2016 Million Hearts Longitudinal ASCVD Risk Assessment Tool user guide.
