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
