Now Available: "Adapting Clinical Guidelines for the Digital Age"

Now Available: "Adapting Clinical Guidelines for the Digital Age," published as a featured supplement in the American Journal of Medical Quality.

The supplement is open access and includes

  • a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention leadership commentary from Dr. Rebecca Bunnell
  • an overview of the initiative (including how all the different standards, processes, and tools work together)
  • a new integrated process for co-developing written and computable guidelines
  • an evaluation framework for the integrated process
  • an adapted Kaizen method for complex, multiorganizational process redesign

A primary outcome of this initiative is the standard, Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources® (FHIR®) Clinical Guidelines or CPG-on-FHIR, which the articles in the supplement reference. CPG-on-FHIR is a Health Level Seven International® (HL7®) standard. HL7 plans to ballot CPG-on-FHIR in January 2024 as part of its continued maturation as an international health data standard. The balloting process includes an open comment period, and anyone can submit comments. There are different processes based on whether you or your organization are HL7 members.
