Clinical Practice Guidelines
L.A. Care systematically reviews and adopts evidence-based Clinical Practice and Preventive Health Guidelines promulgated from peer reviewed sources and from organizations like the National Guideline Clearinghouse and U.S. Preventive Services Task Force. Guidelines for diseases and health conditions identified as most salient to L.A. Care members for the provision of preventive, acute or chronic medical and behavioral health services are regularly reviewed by L.A. Care’s Joint ‘Performance Improvement Collaborative Committee’ and ‘Physician Quality Committee’ to help improve the delivery of health care services to members.
In September of 2016 DHCS released an important update concerning reporting requirements for Provider Preventable Conditions. More information on this update is available by reviewing the Important Update From DHCS.
