“Most of us will experience a significant diagnostic error in our lifetime”


Today was the webcast for the official release of “Improving Diagnosis in Health Care: Resources to Facilitate Communication Between Patients and Clinicians September 22, 2015.” A distillation of the 8 recommendations includes a focus on improving diagnosis through:

1. Teamwork
2. Education
3. Technology
4. Workflow
5. Culture
6. Reporting
7. Payments
8. Research

There were an incredible number of excellent and insightful statements. I’m hoping later for a full transcript of the remarks! Meanwhile, here is a Storify of reactions to the webcast as it occurred, with what people watching captured as most important.

And the video shown at the end of the webcast.
