With the spread of managed care and integrated delivery networks, an increased emphasis has been placed on the cost-effectiveness of clinical practices. The need has been recognized to use guidelines to support education, and to integrate them into clinical practice. A specification for guideline representation that would facilitate computer-based clinical guideline sharing has been developed by the InterMed Collaboratory. Called GLIF (GuideLine Interchange Format), this specification and its proposed extensions have been the basis for our implementation of a framework and suite of integrated software tools for guideline authoring and editing, packaging in XML, Internet distribution, navigation, eligibility determination, and automatic execution.
