Guidelines

HealthTeamWorks was founded as the Colorado Clinical Guidelines Collaborative (CCGC) to convene stakeholders to create evidence-based clinical guidelines for Colorado providers. As the organization expands its mission, we continue to develop new and revised guidelines as the foundation of quality care. 

When incorporated into practice using tracking forms, registries, electronic health records and work-flow redesign to maximize the abilities of the healthcare team, clinical guidelines support efficient, quality care. According to Glen Kotz, MD, a family physician in Basalt, Colo., "The heavy work was done in the creation and writing of the guidelines. Now we just have to adopt them into our work flows… All the appropriate care is outlined in the guideline. We no longer have to trust it to memory and can share the load of patient care among our qualified staff."
