The updated Anticoag Evaluator helps clinicians make informed decisions on antithrombotic therapy for their non-valvular AF patients.

Use the app to:

Calculate a patient's stroke risk (CHA2DS2-Vasc), bleed risk (HAS-BLED and concomitant meds), and renal function (Cockroft-Gault Equation)
Review stroke prevention therapy guidance based on ACC/AHA/HRS's 2014 Guidelines for the Management of Patients with Atrial Fibrillation
Improve accurate use of DOACs with adjusted dosage based on prescribing information, fine-tuned for renal and other patient characteristics
Determine appropriate therapy for a patient by reviewing
Synthesized individualized risk for antithrombotic therapy options based on clinical trials (e.g., ACTIVE-A, RE-LY, ROCKET-AF, ARISTOTLE, ENGAGE-AF)
Relevant safety information and full prescribing information for all therapy options

This app was developed as part of ACC's Anticoagulation Initiative and is an update to the original AnticoagEvaluator App. Its content was adapted from a web tool created by Peter Loewen, ACPR, Pharm.D., FCSHP, which can be viewed at http://www.sparctool.com/. The app was further refined and vetted through review and user testing by physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other relevant specialists.
