American College of Cardiology (ACC) makes prediction tool available to EHRs through Apervita

Apervita, the first platform and marketplace for executing and sharing health analytics & data, today announced the American College of Cardiology (ACC) will add a recognized tool for predicting cardiovascular disease to the growing body of analytics being distributed through the Apervita Marketplace.

Published jointly with the American Heart Association, ACC’s ASCVD Risk Estimator is broadly used and respected as a facilitator for physician-patient discussion about risk reduction through lifestyle change.
