Two Guidelines Added to ACC Guideline Clinical App

App provides mobile access to guidelines, tools for treatment, prevention of heart disease

Atrial fibrillation, heart valve repair, software, mobile devices, ACC app

December 19, 2014 — The American College of Cardiology’s recently released Guideline Clinical App has expanded with the addition of tools and guideline content for two conditions, valvular heart disease and atrial fibrillation.

The ACC Guideline Clinical App was launched in November with the initial version including content based on guidelines for heart failure, cardiovascular risk assessment and treatment of blood cholesterol. In addition to the Executive Summary and Top 10 Points for each guideline, the app includes a collection of interactive tools such as dosing calculators, scoring tools and algorithms useful to clinicians in determining recommended care.

The ACC, which has been developing clinical practice guidelines in partnership with the American Heart Association for more than three decades, developed this app to serve as a mobile home for all ACC/AHA guideline content and related tools.

The ACC will continue to refine and expand the app. An additional update is expected in March with content and tools based on guidelines for the treatment of obesity and the management of lifestyle to reduce cardiovascular risk.

The American College of Cardiology Guideline Clinical App is available for free on iTunes and GooglePlay.
