@Dr. Thomas and Ms. Zipperer - many thanks for sharing the link to our brief from the Health Policy Center at the Urban Institute.

It's interesting to follow the discussions on the SIDM listserv group. I am attaching the PDF copy of the brief and summary as well. Please feel free to circulate and do share your comments or thoughts.

Many thanks,

Divvy

I suspect many of you have already seen this but it has not been posted here.

The Bob Berenson wrote a report on diagnostic errors for the Urban Institute, funded by RWJ.  It is very well done and should be carefully read by everyone interested in the topic.

I like the fact that they recognize how hard it is to measure dx error and therefor propose a range of policy options that go beyond simply trying to measure and hold organizations accountable for reducing specific dx errors.  http://www.urban.org/publications/413104.html
