The Coalition to Improve Diagnosis, formed and led by the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine, increases awareness and actions that improve diagnosis. Members of the Coalition represent hundreds of thousands of healthcare providers and patients—and the leading health organizations and government agencies involved in patient care. Together, we work to find solutions that enhance diagnostic safety and quality, reduce harm, and ultimately, ensure better health outcomes for patients.

Published by DeGruyter, Diagnosis examines the question of how diagnosis determines the quality of medical care. It focuses on how diagnosis can be advanced, how it is taught, and how and why it can fail, leading to diagnostic errors.

ImproveDx highlights organizations working to improve diagnosis and discussions about current research and policy developments, and offers articles that focus in depth on central issues in the field of diagnostic safety.
Listserv participants – physicians, researchers, patients, patient advocates, and healthcare providers – are part of an ongoing and robust email discussion, interaction and professional collaboration on topics relevant to diagnostic error in medicine.
