U-Prevent provides an new approach to defining cardiovascular risk. It is suitable for the risk assessment of diabetic patients and patients who have already undergone cardiovascular events. Personalized risk start-up.U-Prevent is an online platform that aims to provide tools for personalizing cardiovascular disease prevention. These tools may be used for educational or research purposes or to support doctor-patient communication. Individual risk estimations for (recurrent) major cardiovascular events can be used for patient education. These tools may allow patients to gain more insight into their personal prognosis, thereby increasing their health-motivation and positively impacting adherence to prescribed therapy. U-Prevent provides tools to estimate both 10-year and lifetime effects of the most frequently applied preventive interventions, including blood pressure lowering, lipid lowering and platelet aggregation inhibition.
