The Guideline Advantage™ quality improvement program utilizes data from electronic health records (EHRs) or health technology platforms to report on adherence to evidence-based guidelines
THREE LEADING HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS.
ONE SHARED VISION.
For decades, medical professionals have relied on the American Cancer Society, American Diabetes Association and American Heart Association for scientific guidelines on prevention and management of the nation's most prevalent chronic diseases.
In 2011, the three organizations joined forces to create The Guideline Advantage, a program that uses data collection, analysis and feedback to translate prevention and treatment guidelines into practice within the outpatient setting.
The program is particularly relevant in light of the current healthcare environment, aligning with key national initiatives and supporting Meaningful Use and Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) initiatives.
