National Cardiac Arrest Collaborative to Meet in October

Cerner and Duke Clinical Research Institute Collaborate on Cardiac Risk App

Cerner collaborated with Duke Clinical Research Institute to develop an atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) Risk Calculator app, designed as a tool to increase communication between the person and their doctor about ways to live a healthier life and risk factors for heart disease and stroke. The app helps health care providers estimate 10-year and lifetime ASCVD risk for patients based on information like age, race, sex, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, smoking status and diabetes status. If untreated, ASCVD can lead to heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest, as well as fatal and nonfatal stroke.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
