In a nutshell: Electronic health record-based assessment, in addition to manual assessment by a physician, was performed retrospectively on a study of American adults. The two sets of results were compared and found to be similar. Since the automated risk assessment accurately identified candidates in need of therapy, it could be used to improve detection rates of high-risk patients.
