Health risk appraisal (HRA) is a systematic approach for collecting information regarding individual risk factors, predicting the probability of disease occurrence and death, and linking patients with interventions to promote health and prevent disease. Because the risk factors of cardiovascular disease are well established, several cardiovascular disease risk prediction models have been developed over multiple decades. The health risk appraisal prediction model of the Korean national health screening program will be revised and updated using the latest well-validated studies to reflect the current characteristics of the Korean population and to improve the effectiveness of education and behavioral modifications. It is necessary to provide various tools such as a web page and smartphone application to increase the utility of this program in the future.
Key Words: Cardiovascular diseases, Risk factors, Behavior control
