National Library of Medicine (NLM) Health Services/Technology Assessment Text (HSTAT) Database

When a guideline appears in both HSTAT and the National Guideline Clearinghouse™ (NGC), reciprocal links are supported between the two databases.

The links from NGC to full-text documents in HSTAT are located in the "Guideline Availability" field, as well as the Full--Text link located in the left-hand navigation bar.

The links from HSTAT to NGC are typically found on the HSTAT "Query" page when the NGC information applies to the entire document, or just under the title if only part of the document or collection is relevant.

The ability to search the NGC database can be found on the HSTAT Web site at: http://hstat.nlm.nih.gov/hq/Hquest.

National Library of Medicine PubMed Search Service

Links from bibliographic records found in PubMed to the NGC Guideline Summaries have been implemented in the new PubMed system. See the PubMed Web site for additional details.
