ECRI Institute yesterday launched its web-based repository for evidence-based clinical practice guidelines. The organization previously maintained the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s National Guideline Clearinghouse, which closed in July because funding expired. The new portal includes expert summaries for some of the guidelines and scores the guidelines based on the Institute of Medicine standards for trustworthiness. ECRI plans to update the website as new content becomes available, and add advanced search capabilities and support for guideline implementation and decision-making.
