Calculate ASCVD scores seriously fast

RapidASCVD is a mobile app to calculate ASCVD scores seriously fast.

Accurate ASCVD Scores Without the Wait

ClinCalc's RapidASCVD app provides accurate 10-year ASCVD risk estimates per the AHA/ACC guidelines1 in about 10-15 seconds flat. The user interface of RapidASCVD has specifically been optimized for speed so that busy clinicians are able to quickly obtain an ASCVD score for a patient in the fastest amount of time possible.

ASCVD risk is the estimated probability of a patient having a first-time (primary) event of coronary heart disease (such as myocardial infarction), cerebrovascular disease (such as stroke), and peripheral arterial disease. This estimate is not appropriate for use in patients who have already had one of these cardiovascular events.

RapidASCVD has been extensively tested for accuracy to produce identical 10-year ASCVD results with the American College of Cardiology's ASCVD Risk Estimator +, which is based on the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk.1 The ACC Risk Estimator "Plus" provides additional functionality that is not required to calculate a 10-year ASCVD risk that can slow the user experience when these additional features are not necessary.

Seriously Fast ASCVD Scores

A 10-year ASCVD (atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease) risk estimate requires four numeric entries and five variables with two choices:

  • Age
  • Total cholesterol
  • HDL cholesterol
  • Systolic blood pressure
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Presence of antihypertensive therapy
  • History of diabetes mellitus
  • Current smoking status

While a multitude of other risk factors for cardiovascular disease exist, these nine variables are the only required parameters for the AHA/ACC 10-year ASCVD risk estimate. For that reason, RapidASCVD only requires users to input these variables in order to generate an ASCVD score for a patient. This clinical tool is intended to be used in conjunction with reasonable clinical judgment.

The app interface has been optimized on both iOS and Android devices to expedite the user experience as much as possible. Users are able to quickly navigate between patient parameter fields using as few screen taps as possible. For most users, an ASCVD risk estimate can be calculated in about 10 to 15 seconds or less.

Accurate, Validated ASCVD Risk Estimates

RapidASCVD has been extensively tested for accuracy with the pooled cohort equations as published in the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk.1 The risk estimate output is also consistent with the 2019 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease, acknowledging that many other cardiovascular risk factors exist that are not present in the ASCVD risk calculation.2 This clinical tool is intended to be used in conjunction with reasonable clinical judgment.

RapidASCVD - Ready for Download

This app is perfect for any healthcare provider or student who needs to calculate ASCVD risk estimates as part of their usual practice. RapidASCVD provides accurate and quick estimates so clinicians can quickly determine a patient's ASCVD risk and engage in a shared decision making conversation about opportunities to reduce future ASCVD events.
