Executive summary: Goldman Index for cardiac risk

Cardiologist Lee Goldman developed two life-saving medical methodologies: The Goldman Index, a method for appraising the cardiac risk involved in non-heart surgeries, and the Goldman Criteria, a widely-used algorithm which helps medical professionals decide whether patients with chest pain require immediate hospital admission. With his colleague Robert Wachter he coined the term 'hospitalist' for physicians whose practice primarily involves hospitalized patients, and Goldman created the first academic program for training hospitalists. He also laid out the Coronary Heart Disease Policy Model, which prioritizes heart disease therapies, and he has been co-editor of the medical resource Cecil Textbook of Medicine since 1999.
