Improving Diagnosis in Health Care
In 2015, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAM) released its landmark report, Improving Diagnosis in Health Care, identifying eight major goals for effecting progress on diagnostic error. The report has helped inform the work of the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) and its Coalition to Improve Diagnosis; the goals are listed below.
Highlighting Progress, Advancing the Movement
In 2017, NAM hosted an event highlighting substantial progress towards advancing the vision of Improving Diagnosis in Health Care, including a presentation from SIDM leadership recognizing contributions made by Coalition members.
Attendees from diverse organizations that are committed to improving diagnostic accuracy celebrated progress and discussed the urgent patient safety imperative to address harm related to diagnostic error. SIDM is committed to leading these efforts, and will explore every opportunity to accelerate progress.
