The GRACE 2.0 ACS Risk Calculator implements the revised GRACE algorithms for predicting death or death/myocardial infarction following an initial acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
GRACE (the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events)
is an international observational programme of outcomes for patients who were hospitalized with an ACS in the 10
years from 1999. GRACE includes nearly 250 hospitals in 30 countries, and enrolled a total of 102,341 patients.
Participating physicians receive confidential quarterly reports showing their outcomes side by side with the
aggregate outcomes of all participating hospitals. The GRACE Risk Score has been extensively validated
prospectively and externally.

GRACE database homepage
at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and GRACE Score at the University of Edinburgh.
The work on the updated GRACE calculator was supported by the British Heart Foundation and the Chief Scientist
in Scotland, and the development of the app and website was supported by an educational grant from AstraZeneca
to the University of Edinburgh.
