Practice guideline systems are a big deal these days: good ones can improve care, and the much-touted electronic health systems/devices can be programmed to pop up with suggestions at key moments. The bad ones, however, are Bad News...often imposed in the name of limiting liability, they can stifle a doctor's ability to practice effectively, and can interfere with the doctor's rapport with his/her patients.

This bit is an interesting idea of how to rate guidelines, etc...I'm not awake enough just now to really get into the meat of it, but it's worth examining.
