Practice Guidelines

At Arkansas Total Care, we want to help you reach your best health. We base our preventive and clinical practice guidelines on guidance from the Quality Assurance Program Improvement (QAPI) program. We base all of our practice guidelines on industry standards, when standards for a given guideline or service are available. We want to be sure each of our members is cared for with the highest quality care. To do that, we use findings from medical experts and organizations that are credible and meet high standards, including:

  • American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)
  • American College of Cardiology (ACC)
  • American Heart Association (AHA)
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
  • National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)
  • National Institute of Health (NIH)
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
  • U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF)
