Mobile Apps

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, Cardiovascular Publications, and Member Engagement.

Clinical

ASCVD Risk Estimator Plus

Use the app 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

  • Calculate a patient's renal function and risk of ischemic stroke, thromboembolism, and bleed
  • Review Guideline-driven therapy guidance for stroke prevention
  • Generate individualized risk for antithrombotic therapy options based on individual clinical trials
  • Improve accurate use of DOACs with adjusted dosage based on prescribing information, fine-tuned for renal and other patient characteristics

The AnticoagEvaluator is available on the web, and all Apple and Android phones and tablets." Find out more >>>

ACC CathPCI Bleeding Risk Calculator App

The ACC CathPCI Bleeding Risk Calculator App helps clinicians assess the individualized patient risk of experiencing a bleeding event associated with a PCI procedure.

DAPT Risk Calculator

The ACC DAPT Risk Calculator App provides decision support for clinicians evaluating the continuation of DAPT therapy for patients at least 12 months post-PCI procedure, and the risk/benefit of continuing or discontinuing DAPT. The App provides a DAPT Risk Score as a numerical value between -2 and +9, where higher DAPT scores suggest that the benefit/risk ratio with prolonged DAPT may be favorable. Conversely, lower DAPT scores suggest that the benefit/risk ratio with prolonged DAPT is NOT favorable. It also calculates the percentage of risk for three end points: myocardial infarction (MI), stent thrombosis, major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE), and bleeding.

The DAPT Risk Calculator is currently available in App Store and on Google Play. Find out more >>>
