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. The popular tool has been downloaded more than 250,000 times and is used more than 7,000 times per day by individual providers, but in its current form requires manual transfer of data between records. The goal of the ACC is to make this tool available to every physician dealing with cardiovascular risk. By offering the risk estimator through Apervita, ACC will now make it available from within electronic health records (EHRs) and other systems that physicians use everyday.
