All of Us Participants Fuel Heart Disease Research

Mar 1, 2024 / Research

Data from the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program show that more than 89,000 participants have heart disease, according to electronic health record data. This includes different conditions, such as atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, heart attacks, and heart valve disease. Additionally, more than 36,000 All of Us participants nationwide self-reported these conditions in a survey and more than 100,000 participants shared that they have a close family member with heart disease.

This makes All of Us one of the largest datasets in the world for heart disease that is broadly available for research. The data that participants contribute help researchers explore important questions that could improve how to prevent, detect and treat heart disease, and deepen our understanding of how the disease is passed down through families. In fact, there are more than 800 research projects on heart disease and related cardiac conditions underway on the Researcher Workbench and more than 20 peer-reviewed publications about heart disease that used the All of Us dataset.
