Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) is a community health system serving over 140,000 patients in Boston's north metro region. In the Spring of 2022 CHA changed over from conventional cardiac troponin (cTn) testing to high sensitive troponins (hs-cTn).

 

A multidisciplinary team at CHA, headed by the Department of Emergency Medicine, developed a protocol specific to their new hs-cTn assays incorporating a modified HEART score. Specifically, they used gender-specific cutoffs with a normal hs-cTn of ≤ 15 ng/L for men and ≤ 10 ng/L for women. A HEART score > 7-10 or hs-cTn > 52 ng/L for either gender gives an automatic recommendation to admit to the hospital.
