  • Overview

    Helping patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) achieve and maintain a low mortality risk status, which has been associated with improved outcomes, is an overall treatment goal,1,2 prompting the development of several tools to assess risk status in patients with PAH.3 Yet widespread clinical implementation of these tools to date is considered to be fraught with barriers.4 Could the implementation of the Registry to Evaluate Early and Long-Term PAH Disease Management (REVEAL) 2.0 and REVEAL Lite 2 risk assessment tools into an electronic health record (EHR) system be helpful in overcoming those barriers? Dr. Abhijit Raval and patient coordinator Kelly Dickson join Dr. Randy Young to share more about the importance of standardized risk assessment and their experience implementing the REVEAL tools into their institution's EHR.

    Dr. Randy Young is a paid consultant for ReachMD, and Dr. Abhijit Raval and Kelly Dickson are paid consultants for the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson.
