www.guidelines.gov

Key point: Funding for the federal guidelines clearinghouse at www.guidelines.gov was set to expire on July 16, 2018. No additional federal funding was expected to be supplied.

Major finding: The free site was designed as an accessible way to find and compare clinical practice guidelines across all medical specialties.

Some external parties had expressed interest in continuing the work of the site; however, no provisions for that contingencies were available as the site's shutdown deadline approached.
