National Guideline Clearinghouse

The National Guideline Clearinghouse™ (NGC) is an on-line, publicly available database of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and related documents.

The Clearinghouse—principally used by providers, payers, employers and researchers—is designed to be an educational tool, providing aggregate information on evidence-based practices.
