FHS Risk Functions

FHS Primary Risk Functions

Risk prediction estimates for the risk of various cardiovascular disease outcomes in different time horizons are available as score sheets and direct risk functions.

Please review our Framingham Risk Score Policy regarding the use of these risk functions. 

The choice of the appropriate risk prediction algorithm should take into account the following components: cardiovascular outcome, population of interest, time horizon, and risk factors.

Outcome specific algorithms preceded by the descriptions of the above four components are available for the following:

Atrial Fibrillation

Cardiovascular Disease

Congestive Heart Failure

Coronary Heart Disease


Fatty Liver Disease


Intermittent Claudication
