Provider Alert! Clinical Practice Guidelines Resource ReminderTexas Children's Health Plan
Date: September 21, 2022
Attention: All Providers
Providers should monitor the Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) Provider Portal regularly for alerts and updates associated to the COVID-19 event. TCHP reserves the right to update and/or change this information without prior notice due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 event.
Call to action: The purpose of this communication is to remind providers about their access to Texas Children’s Health Plan’s (TCHP) Clinical Practice Guidelines and to inform of updated guideline content.
How this impacts providers: TCHP relies on the use of evidence-based clinical practice to evaluate the quality of care received by members and to identify provider opportunities to improve delivery of evidence-based clinical care. Clinical Practice Guidelines are developed based on TCHP member population-based needs, adopted from current national guidelines for practice and updated at least every two years. They are reviewed and approved by participating providers on our TCHP Clinical Advisory Committees and Quality Committee, which are composed of primary care physicians and a variety of specialists.
Clinical Practice Guidelines are distributed to our providers via the Texas Children’s® Link Provider Portal (https://epiccarelink.texaschildrens.org/EpicCareLink/common/epic_login.asp) and on our website: https://www.texaschildrenshealthplan.org/for-providers/provider-resources/practice-guidelines
The posted Clinical Practice Guidelines were reviewed and updated in April 2022.
For any providers without internet access, copies of the Clinical Practice Guidelines can be mailed. Please contact the Provider Relations department at 832-828-1004 or 1-800-731-8527 (toll free) for more information.
Next steps for providers: Providers are encouraged to review TCHP’s Clinical Practice Guidelines:
