AHCPR's Online Guidelines Tool Open for Business

A year and a half in the making, the U.S. Agency for Health Care Policy and Research's National Guidelines Clearinghouse is up and running at http://www.guidelines.gov/. This resource gives users access to thousands of clinical protocols issued by AHCPR, professional organizations, and even some health plans. Proprietary and commercial guidelines, such as those issued by Milliman & Robertson, are not on the AHCPR site.

The clearinghouse is a joint project of AHCPR, the AMA, and the American Association of Health Plans.
