ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus

The updated ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus 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 2018 ACC/AHA  Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol, the 2017 Guideline For the Prevention, Detection, Evaluation and Management of High Blood Pressure in Adults, the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk, and the 2016 Million Hearts Longitudinal ASCVD Risk Assessment Tool user guide. The information and recommendations in this app are meant to support clinical decision making. They are not meant to represent the only or best course of care, or replace clinical judgment. Therapeutic options should be determined after discussion between the patient and their care provider.

The app is available for free.
