AHA/ACC Special Report:

Estimating Longitudinal Risks and Benefits From Cardiovascular Preventive Therapies Among Medicare Patients: The Million Hearts® Longitudinal ASCVD Risk Assessment Tool

  • The Million Hearts® initiative aims to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by 2017. In support of this initiative, Million Hearts and the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services developed the Cardiovascular Risk Reduction Model to estimate the risk reduction benefit of adhering to several cardiovascular preventive strategies.
  • The is evidence-based tool builds on the 2013 ACC/AHA Prevention Guidelines CV Risk Calculator to calculate the change in predicted risk of clinically managing the “ABCS” (aspirin therapy in appropriate patients, blood pressure control, cholesterol management, and smoking cessation).
  • This AHA/ACC Special Report describes the development and intended use of the Million Hearts® Longitudinal ASCVD Risk Assessment Tool and its use to guide patient-clinician discussion around 2013 GLs, to estimate the projected risk reduction of initiating or continuing therapy options, and to track progress at follow up visits with progressively revised updated 10-year risk estimates.
