ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus App Now Available

The ACC recently updated the ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus app using 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. This app can be used to: estimate a patient’s initial 10-year ASCVD risk; 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.
