Heart conditions are one of the biggest health problems and they are disproportionately common in disadvantaged groups. The onset of risk factors such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol is often at an earlier age in vulnerable groups and left untreated. By applying data sciences to three population datasets, a risk prediction model will be developed and validated for unrecognized high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. This in turn, can lead to targeted case finding, early identification and risk mitigation of cardiovascular risk, improved healthcare outcomes, and reduction in health inequalities.
