Mobile Resources

The ACC has partnered with various organizations to create a variety of resources optimized for smart phones and tablets.

These apps fall into three categories:


Clinical



ACCSAP 8

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.

AnticoagEvaluator

The AnticoagEvaluator is an easy and fast tool for clinicians to use when assessing stroke and bleeding risk and the benefits and risks of antithrombotic therapy in patients with non-valvular chronic atrial fibrillation. The app synthesizes clinical trial data for antithrombotic therapy options and uses this data in combination with individual patient characteristics to calculate individualized annual risk of ischemic stroke and thromboembolism with a concurrent annual risk of major bleed. The app is currently available for use on iPad, iPhone, Android and tablet.
