Patient's Baseline ASCVD Score

SAS Name

Patient's baseline atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) score.


This field is the ACC Risk score calculated from information during the visit. The higher the score, the greater the ASCVD risk. The data file also includes a categorical variable that groups this score into either high, medium, or low risk (BASELINE_GROUP). After the baseline assessment, subsequent provider assessments of patient risk are in the RISK_SCORE field.

Values: Ex — 21.7000, or null/missing
