Hello again, National Guideline Clearinghouse?

NGCIn the wake of the recent demise of the National Guideline Clearinghouse due to a loss of federal funding, the ECRI Institute has announced plan to continue to provide access to a guideline database.  ECRI Institute is an independent nonprofit organization which the United States federal government contracted with to develop and maintain the National Guideline Clearinghouse.

The ECRI will launch an initial site in Fall 2018 to allow users to search and retrieve clinical practice guidelines and will include unbiased evaluations on the rigor and transparency of guidelines based on the National Academy of Medicine‘s (formerly the Institute of Medicine) standards for trustworthiness.  While the National Guideline Clearinghouse was available at no cost to all users, the ECRI’s guidelines’ database will be freely accessible to participating guideline developers; access costs for other users, if any, are not posted at this time.

For additional information, please consult  http://www.ecri.org/guidelines, or contact ECRI Institute at guidelines@ecri.org ot 5200 Butler Pike, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462 USA.
