Hi,

 

The four news items uploaded today have a little bit of something for nearly
everyone interested in DxErrors.

 

.         Three Studies Illuminate Presence of DxError in Outpatient Care.
The authors determined about 5% of adults in the US, or more than 12 million
individuals, experience a diagnostic error in the outpatient setting each
year.

.         Technology Tools provide Insights for Physicians

.         Claims Help Surface Prevalence of Internist DxError. Nearly a
quarter million claims against internists over 25 years and 26% of the
claims were due to error in diagnosis - the largest single cause of claims
against this specialty.

.         DxError on the Policy Radar Screen. This same topic will be
addressed in a keynote at the DEM 2014 conference by one of the three
authors of this report: Dr. Robert Berenson, Senior Fellow at the Urban
Institute.

 

Hope you have a great weekend of reading!

 

Bill
