-Consider the case of Vera, a 60 year old woman of Asian descent with a history of hypertension and asthma, entering the doctor'​s office with symptoms consistent with a diagnosis of pneumonia. Her primary care physician must diagnose and treat the acute illness, but also manage risk for chronic diseases such as heart attack, stroke, renal failure, and osteoporosis. Ideally, treatment decisions for Vera are guided by risk stratification to decide if to treat, and evidence based selection of how to treat (perhaps[[:​greenbutton|learning from similar patients]]).+Consider the case of Vera, a 60 year old woman of Asian descent with a history of hypertension and asthma, entering the doctor'​s office with symptoms consistent with a diagnosis of pneumonia.

 However, without accurate risk-stratification to decide who to treat, and when, Vera's care remains reactive and suboptimal. Imagine how Vera’s experience would change if we could predict risks of specific events and take proactive action. However, without accurate risk-stratification to decide who to treat, and when, Vera's care remains reactive and suboptimal.
