Clinical Practice Guidelines

Neighborhood provides a number of Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) for providers’ reference. These guidelines are for our members’ more common chronic problems and for their preventive care. They are based on established national guidelines from medical authorities such as the National Institutes of Health and the American College of Cardiology. These guidelines are each reviewed every two years, but updates can occur as needed.

For many of the CPGs, rather than create our own set of guidelines, Neighborhood will adopt a national guideline and publish the link to that guideline for practitioners.

The guidelines can be found online at our website at under Providers/Clinical Resources.
