The ACC has partnered with various organizations to create a variety of resources optimized for smart phones and tablets.
Coming in Spring 2015: ACC’s Statin Intolerance App uses clinical guidelines and best practices to help clinicians evaluate possible statin intolerance, and determine the best course of therapy for their patients. The app includes a useful drug interaction tool that provides relevant pharmacological characteristics of each statin, to compare across statins and assess for secondary medication interactions.
The ACC's Guideline Clinical App is the mobile home of clinical guideline content and tools for clinicians caring for patients with cardiovascular disease. You can access guideline recommendations, "10 Points" summaries, and tools such as risk scores, calculators and algorithms. Customize your App by using the bookmark, note-taking, and shareable PDF features. The app is available on iTunes (iPhone, iPad) and Google Play (Android devices).
ACC members can engage with lawmakers and influence health policy with the ACC Advocacy Action mobile app. The app includes an interactive congressional directory to locate lawmakers, timely talking points to share during congressional visits, an event scheduler to keep track of Capitol Hill meetings, social media tools to engage with legislators, and more. The app is available on iTunes (iPhone, iPad) and Google Play (Android devices).
The ASCVD Risk Estimator is published jointly by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to help health care providers and patients estimate 10-year and lifetime risks for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) using the Pooled Cohort Equations and lifetime risk prediction tools. This app is intended as a companion tool to the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk and the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Risk in Adults.
The ASCVD Risk Estimator provides easy access to recommendations specific to calculated risk estimates. Additionally, the app includes readily accessible guideline reference information for both providers and patients related to therapy, monitoring, and lifestyle.
