Clinical guidelines for providers
Clinical guidelines offer providers consistent and appropriate guidance for diagnosis and treatment of specific conditions or diseases. The clinical guidelines supported by Geisinger Health Plan reflect the current literature and research about treatment protocols, and incorporate enterprise experience and best practices.
Clinical guidelines present an opportunity to significantly reduce variation in the clinical setting and provide part of a framework necessary for measuring and improving the quality of care.
Geisinger Health Plan views all caregivers as active participants in the monitoring and feedback of the effectiveness of these guidelines and welcomes provider feedback and suggestions. If you have any comments or want to provide input regarding a specific guideline, contact Phil Krebs by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
