Science Behind the COVIDAge Risk Calculator™
The underlying algorithms behind the Vascular Age CalculatorTM are derived principally from the Framingham Heart Study (10yr risk) with additional data sets found in global scientific research papers. It is of note that there is a high degree of overlap between these risk factors and those predictive of COVID-19 outcomes. This is the genesis of Everist Heath’s work with the COVIDAge Risk CalculatorTM.
Data from organizations such as the CDC along with reported research studies on COVID-19 have been used to derive COVIDAge figures and COVID Risk factor percentages. This underlying data will be updated regularly as more studies become available to ensure the COVIDAge Risk Calculator evolves and is as accurate as possible.
