ECRI Writes the Book on Health Standards

January 23, 2007 - ECRI, a nonprofit health services research agency, announced the publication of its 19th annual edition of the 2007 Healthcare Standards: Official Directory, an updated print edition that indexes titles of more than 39,000 official and hard-to-find healthcare standards, practice guidelines, policy statements and other authoritative documents from more than 1,250 issuing organizations.
The directory verifies, indexes and updates medical and legal healthcare standards from organizations around the world and includes titles of U.S. federal and state healthcare-related laws and regulations. Attorneys, legal nurse consultants, risk managers, clinicians, insurers, patient safety officers and medical and legal librarians rely on ECRI’s directory to find standards of care, research medical malpractice cases, investigate how to reduce liability exposures, assess risk management procedures and more.

ECRI’s annual print edition and its Web partner, HCS Online, facilitate searching for a broad range of documents on thousands of topics such as asthma, bariatric surgery, breast cancer screening, chronic pain, disaster preparedness, wound care and more. The enhanced specialty search feature allows for fast, precise searching on clinical areas, such as communicable diseases, obstetrics and psychiatry.

“If you had ever wondered whether a standard treatment or clinical guideline existed for a clinical issue or condition, the Healthcare Standards: Official Directory would be a starting point for the answer. This is an excellent reference book for the researcher, educator, and legal professional,” says Olusegun Ishmael, M.D. from the Journal of the National Medical Association.

HCS Online also offers updated content, ease of research, and a sort-by-year feature. Citations include the document name, type of document, and price (if available), as well as contact information for the issuing organization, including quick links to organizations’ Web sites and e-mail addresses. Online subscriptions include one full year of Web access with unlimited IDs and passwords for facility staff, as well as a free monthly e-newsletter for all subscribers. HCS Online includes the same depth of information as the printed directory, and with daily updates, subscribers can depend on it for the most current information available.
