Cambridge Cardiac Care Centre

Welcome Healthcare Providers!

We are here to support you

As the region’s largest full-service, non-invasive cardiovascular centre, we are passionate advocates of coordinated care. Leveraging our physical and virtual clinic spaces, we seek collaborative partnerships with primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and specialists to help meet the needs of the chronic and complex cases that we are jointly presented. From risk-calculators, tools and case-specific patient education resources to referral form and econsult platforms, we have created this portal as a single repository of cardiology resources keeping the healthcare provider in mind and the patient at heart.

Residual Cardiovascular Risk Calculator & Disease Management Guide

More accurate clinical assessment makes for better clinical decisions

Cambridge Cardiac Care Secondary Prevention Residual Risk Reduction Tool has been specially designed to meet two important needs of the primary care and referring specialist physicians. First, to determine, within seconds, the risk of recurrent cardiovascular events and mortality of your ASCVD patient. And second, to provide tailored, patient-specific information that can aid in case management and clinician-patient discussions regarding risk reversal strategies.

Patient Risk Calculators

We are here to assist you in whatever way we can. That’s why CCC is continually developing and procuring online tools to help support our fellow healthcare providers in their assessment of patients’ cardiovascular health. We recommend using these calculators.

Patient Education Resources

Patient education means more than just offering literature and disseminating manualized instructions. Encouraging your patients to take a more active role in their own healthcare and recovery is arguably the most crucial element in sustainable treatment success. To this end, we have compiled diet, exercise, smoking cessation and lifestyle resources that you can leverage in your patient-education efforts.
