Clinical guidelines

Humana adopts clinical practice guidelines based on guidance from national organizations generally considered expert in their fields. Humana's YourPractice features updates to established guidelines and introduces newly adopted guidelines. The goal of these updates is to provide timely information about evidence-based best practices to help improve patient care and improve quality measures. While many guidelines are updated annually, others may not change for several years.
