    SCAI PCI Risk Calculator App

    SCAI's PCI Risk Calculator App, sponsored by The Medicines Company, allows healthcare providers to enter pre-procedural patient information into one calculator to estimate the post-intervention risks for

    • Mortality
    • Acute kidney injury
    • Transfusion. 

    This tool can also be used to:

    • Guide patients in decisions on therapy
    • Guide providers in preparing the patient for the procedure
    • Help providers use limited healthcare resources more wisely
    • Guide quality improvement efforts
    • Serve as a risk adjustment tool for assessment of quality of care to identify potential candidates for same-day discharge or risk mitigation strategies
