Georgia Tech: Identification of Patients Requiring Statin Therapy

The US Preventive Services Task Force recommends that adults without a history of cardiovascular disease (CVD) use a low- to moderate-dose statin for the prevention of cardiovascular events and mortality when certain conditions are met. Every day, providers see many patients who each have different existing conditions, and providers may be focused on those current conditions/illnesses. Prevention can be easily overlooked. By leveraging CDS Hooks and FHIR, we can automatically check conditions upon chart opening and provide the physician with an indication that a patient would or would not benefit from Statin use. This takes the burden off the physician and greatly benefits the patient.
