The FH Score - a diagnostic support tool now certified in four countries

FH Score is a diagnosis support tool for use by healthcare professionals to support the diagnosis of adult patients at risk of heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia (HeFH), based on the EAS 2013 Consensus Statement on FH. The FH Score tool calculates a familial hypercholesterolaemia score for your patient, which can be used to determine the likelihood of an FH diagnosis.

The FH Score is currently certified as a medical device for use in Germany, UK, France and Belgium, and is available in German, English and French. It is intended to extend the certification for use to further EU countries in the near future. The FH Score Tool has been developed and funded by Amgen.
