The app returns an estimated risk based on current data. However the Therapy impact suggests various scenarios that are imprudent. Start HBP meds when the patient doesn’t have HBP. Or intensify Statins for patients whose risk is less than 7.5%
Totally inaccurate 1/5
This new version has some serious flaws. In addition to being harder to navigate than previous versions, it gives seriously incorrect values for ASCVD risk - last two patients I profiled both came back at 1.1% 10 year risk which is just not possible in the population I am seeing. Last person had a total cholesterol of 334! And still came back as 1.1% risk. Please scrap this version and go back to the old one.
I miss old version 2/5
I miss the old version which included more details on statins with high/moderate vs low intensity statins. A little harder to use now.
Useful app 4/5
By Internal Med Doc
The estimation of therapy impact is useful and can be shown to patients so they understand rationale of treatment. The biggest fault is that fields requiring numerical data defaults to letter keyboard. It should automatically bring up the numerical keyboard to ease the burden of data entry.
A new defect 2/5
Thenk you for adding a reset button. But now, when we enter a value (which must be done 5 times) it defaults now to the letter type screen, not the numerical. This requires another keystroke for every number that needs to be entered.
This may not sound like much, but since we use it for every patient who gets a lipid panel. this is adding up to a pain. It reminds me too much of my old EHR.
Can I somehow revert to the previous version? Thankfully another group has one called the "ASCVD suite" which avoids this wrong screen problem.
Please update! 3/5
I use this app all the time but it's listed in my phone as one that won't work with the ios11 update 😟 please update to a 64-bit version!!
Needs to be Updated 4/5
I like this tool as its results and recommendations are consistem with the joint 2013 recommendations of the American Colege of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, but it needs to be updated to 64 bit version. I believe that it will not run on the next version of the iOS.
Update required! 4/5
By apple ronald
Thank you for the app. It's really useful but Please update the app soon. This is so out of date.
Useful but they really need to update it 1/5
Frequently crashes and I always get a warning "this application may slow down your phone" every time I open the app. It hasn't been updated since 2014. 3 years? I'd pay for the app if they would just make it comparable with the new iOS.

Nice app that condenses a lot of information into simple format. Unfortunately, like my peers, it NEEDS A RESET BUTTON. It constantly freezes up and requires me to delete the app and reinstall. 5 stars if it would function appropriately.
No reset, has bugs 3/5
Does not allow recalculation or to change input data.
It's sad to see that no one has bothered to fix this issue.
Needs improvement 3/5
Would be great to have refresh button, so that after using it one 1 patient, one can clear input fields, and re-use app with another patient.
Currently, this is not an option and makes use if the app cumbersome and time consuming.
Please look into this.
Needs a reset/clear button! 4/5
By Dr. Family Practice
Great tool for point of care decisions.... But- desperately needs a reset/clear button to be able to calculate a new patient without having to close and re-open the app!
Bug causes app to freeze 2/5
Good calculator but current version freezes after a single calculation. If you want to enter data for a new patient, you have to close the app, then restart each time. Pretty annoying
It's a good tool but only when it wants to work. I wish it t had a clear button to enter in a new patient. It freezes up on me to the point where I need to power off my phone and then reopen the app completely. For this reason I will be trying a different app.
Generally has been great but last few weeks has been freezing annoyingly
Still needs a reset button 4/5
Application still needs a reset and return button
Best app ever!!!!i lalaLOVE it!!! 5/5
I like this app and use it after for my patients, but several times it has caused my iPad to crash. Please find and fix this bug.
Nice app but has a bug 3/5
When I enter a TC of 179 along with my other factors, my lifetime risk is 5 pct. if I keep all else equal and raise TC to 180, the risk goes up over 30 pct. This cannot be correct.
Wonderful app for new Guidelines 5/5
Optimal app to help to provide assessment and treatment recommendations for new Prevention guidelines. Helpful to decide who should be treated with statin therapy. Great addition!
