AHRQ Mirror Project

Update: Success! We believe that we have mirrored the critical resourcces from AHRQ's guideline.gov. The files exists in this repo, but if you want to browse the raw files (and they are raw files), you can visit these two sites:

This is a project to backup important resources from https://guideline.gov/ and https://www.qualitymeasures.ahrq.gov/ The reasons for this are explained here: http://www.fredtrotter.com/2018/07/15/emergency-ahrq-backup/

Project by data journalists working at CareSet Systems

General functions

Guidelines

  • get_guidelines.php - A simple script that downloads all guidelines search results
  • extract_guideline_links.php - Once get_guidelines.php is run, use this to download from wayback, the latest version of guidelines. Create guideline_links.csv which shows what was gettable and how old it was.
  • guidelines_links.csv - shows the guidelines and which timestamp that wayback machine got for them.
  • www.guideline.gov - contains the actual mirror

manual backups
