We built a single page application to help doctors and patients visualize how a variety of factors impact cardiovascular health.
- Backend Systems
This application was developed at Mile Two to provide an intuitive interface to help both physicians and patients make sense of clinical values (e.g., cholesterol levels) in relation to heart health. The interface can be manipulated in real-time to provide instantaneous feedback about how a specific value impacts heart health and treatment considerations.The left side of the interface allows you to enter clinical data (e.g., gender, age, blood chemistry, blood pressure). The center portion of the interface displays the impact of the clinical data in relation to medical models that predict the risk of heart disease. The right portion of the interface provides suggestions for treatment.
The two-dimensional map reflects two critical factors for treatment choices, estimated risk and bad cholesterol (LDL) levels. The crosshair shows the position in this space that corresponds to the information that you have entered. In general, the risk of a critical cardiac event increases from the lower left to the upper right of the graph. High levels of LDL are a particular concern, and tracking these levels is important as LDL can generally be reduced using drug therapy (e.g., statins). If LDL levels are low, but the risk scores are high, then factors other than LDL should be considered. For example, high levels of triglycerides may be symptoms of an unhealthy diet or insufficient exercise, and metabolic syndrome is a collection of symptoms that may be indicative of an unhealthy lifestyle (e.g. sedentary behavior).

We built a mobile-first web application that allows investors, innovators, and entrepreneurs to connect around cutting-edge research.
We developed a consumer-friendly app patients can use to educate themselves about their heart health, have more meaningful interactions with their primary care physician (PCP), and see how much impact small lifestyle changes can have on their heart health.
