The 2018 Patient Summit will highlight some of the pervasive problems that patients face in getting an accurate and timely diagnosis, including the deep systemic issues that underlie the proportionally higher misdiagnosis of women. The summit will showcase innovative work being done by patients and patient organizations to help prevent missed and delayed diagnosis due to systems and cognitive errors. The summit aims to raise awareness of the magnitude and impact of diagnostic error, share concrete examples of patient engagement in diagnostic improvement efforts, and mobilize others to engage in improving diagnosis.
