Dr. Erik Hess

PDS alum, Dr. Erik Hess ’87 of the Mayo Clinic, has been lauded for his ER-decision making aid for patients called the Chest Pain Choice.

This aid includes information on the diagnosis and displays a patient’s 45 day risk of a heart attack and options for care.

“Our goal isn’t to put the decisions in patient’s laps so they feel abandoned, but to involve them in the decision process to the degree they wish to be involved.”

Dr. Hess has a B.A. in Philosophy from Wheaton College and MD from the University of Alabama School of Medicine. He is a Health Services Researcher with an interest in emergency cardio care.
