Register for the Diagnostic Error in Medicine 7th International Conference

Diagnostic error is the leading cause of medical malpractice claims in the U.S. and is estimated to cause 40,000-80,000 deaths annually. One in every ten diagnoses is wrong, and one in every thousand ambulatory diagnostic encounters result in harm. The Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference is focused on Merging Policy, Practice and Technology: Paths to Improve Diagnosis.

Join us 14-17 September in Atlanta, Georgia for the premier event for medical professionals and patients with specific interest in improving medical diagnosis. As a collaborative event, leaders and practitioners are invited to gather together for meaningful discussions driving potential solutions.
