This Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Mobile Application will assist clinicians at the point of care to facilitate adoption and use of the recommendations of the NHLBI Integrated Guidelines for Cardiovascular Health and Risk Reduction in Children and Adolescents. The application integrates assessment and treatment of cardiovascular risk factors with routine pediatric care. This CDS includes 1) an integrated screener for risk factor assessment, 2) blood pressure and BMI calculators, and 3) tools to provide specific follow-up recommendations for lipid and blood pressure management. The integrated screener was developed to collect data element inputs across the following categories: social, behavioral, demographic, physical measurement, patient medical history, and family history. These data elements provide recommendations in seven risk factor domains: Family History, Lipids, Overweight and Obesity, Nutrition and Diet, Blood Pressure, Physical Activity, and Tobacco Exposure. Standalone calculators enable users to rapidly determine percentiles and thresholds for a patient’s BMI and blood pressure. Support for follow-up visits focused lipid screening and blood pressure management are provided by additional modules within the CDS, including referral and treatment recommendations.
