"Guideline Central is currently working with a handful of other organizations to establish a new non-profit initiative which will aim to fill the gap left by the sudden closure of AHRQ’s National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC). This new initiative will include a database of quick-reference guideline summaries, along with a focus on developing a repository of various guideline implementation tools (including machine-computable guidelines for EHRs). This new database will be made available to all healthcare providers in both web and mobile app formats, and will be available for FREE.
Guideline Central is the world’s largest Free Library of up-to-date guideline summaries! Browse over 2600 free guidelines summaries encompassing every setting, specialty, and purpose…for free! View our summaries in the Guideline Central Mobile App or the Guideline Central Website “Library” tab.
We offer GUIDELINES in many convenient formats. Choose from printed pocket guides, flashcards, wall clings – or digital mobile and web apps, including our “world’s largest Free Guidelines Library”. We’re the GUIDELINES people!"
