Welcome to Med-decisions.com!
We provide easy-to-use tools for providers and individuals to make important medical decisions.
The Heart-to-Heart tool provides information to individuals and providers about the chances for developing heart heart disease and stroke in the next 10 years based on combined information about several traditional risk factors. It also provides a way to begin thinking and talking about the options for reducing those chances. To see the Heart to Heart tool for individuals, click the button to the left that says "Heart to Heart for Individuals". To see the Heart to Heart tool for providers, click the button to the left that says "Heart to Heart for Providers". If you've visited the Heart to Heart sites before, you'll notice a few important changes: 1) we now provide the ability to calculate the chances for developing stroke for women considering taking aspirin; 2) we also provide updated information on the benefits and harms of various options for reducing the chances of developing heart disease and stroke.
Happy Decision-Making! We hope you find that our tools improve the quality of your decisions.
