eCalcs – Integrated Health Calculators

We’re excited about this one.

For years, doctors have been using tools like the Framingham Risk Calculator to estimate risk for a number of different disease states – like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and breast cancer. These calculators use information commonly found in the patient’s chart like vital signs, lab values and age. The risk scores are increasingly being typed back into the chart.

eCalcs are . . .

Integrated into the EHR – with one click of a button you are brought to a host of the most common health calculators, including the Framingham Risk Calculators.

Patient Specific – pulling in the relevant data from the current patient’s chart.

Documented back into the EHR – the risk scores can be added back into the patient’s chart with a single click.

    It’s great to see eCalcs as a very logical addition to EHRs. Many physicians, myself included, have used calculators hosted on PDAs and smartphones for years. They are even better if they are integrated with actual patient data and used as clinical decision support. Perhaps it is a little early in the game to see pop up alerts based on behind the scenes calculations, I think we will see it down the line. Calculators will likely be integrated with e-prescribing as well. Example “Your patient’s creatinine clearance is < 50ml/min, reduce drug x." eCalc will know the patient's gender, age, kidney function, pregnancy status and so forth so should have great potential to assist physicians in making intelligent decisions. In my opinion calculators are grossly underutilized by physicians. One of the best examples is over prescribing of statins for older women who don't smoke and who are non-diabetic and non-hypertensive. Plug in age 65, total cholesterol of 250 and HDL of 60 and her 10 year risk of heart disease is only 3%. While calculators are not perfect due to individual variation they are infinitely better than guessing.

    Hi All,

    Is Kj here with a question regarding eCalcs. I am currently working with a Bariatric Group and they are interested in a calculator.

    They would like the calculator to carry forward Pre-Op Wt (starting wt) and BMI (at that time)

    Current Wt and BMI

    Calculate Total Wt Loss and % Total Wt Loss
    Calculate Excess Wt and % Excess Wt Loss

    Calculate Ideal Body Wt

    Is a Bariatric calculator in the works for the near future?

    That should be an easy enough calculator to create, and I can see it being popular with a lot of our customers.

    Our next release, version 1.0.4, is due out in late February / early March. I’ve tentatively slated this work for that release. I’ll contact you separately for additional details.

    Thanks for the feedback!
