Diagnostic Error as Major Issue in Healthcare reported in ECRI and ASHRM Today

My experience has been quite different. The PIAA has featured major presentations on diagnostic failure at their national meetings. Other insurers have shown a strong interest in the problem -several US companies (CRICO, LAMMICO, PRI, IRMS and others) have sponsored webinars, presentations at meetings, and developed training videos that are ahead of anything comparable that I have seen in formal medical education. The CMPA (Canadian Medical Protective Association - effectively the single ‘insurer’ for all Canadian physicians) has taken a strong interest in clinical decision making and diagnosis and promoted educational initiatives on its website. It also sponsors a series of travelling one-day roadshows on diagnosis/decision making for emergency physicians.

I would disagree, respectfully. Myself and others have talked to insurances about missed and delayed dx and they've done nothing.

Nada. Zip. 

That includes the companies who pay the insurance companies.

Actually insurance companies are at increased risk to lose money if diagnostic errors are not addressed. Many of the insurance companies actually present CME courses based on their actuarial experience and present data on causation of common mal practice claims. The MICA in Arizona also gives a discounted rate to those practitioners who attend these meetings.

I am not aware of any presentations regarding errors in medical diagnosis

I have never completely understood why the insurance industry has not led the patient safety movement. Anyone know?

Many thanks for this. 

 

To add to the risk/malpractice view, MMIC (the largest policyholder-owned medical liability insurance company in the Midwest) has dedicated the latest issue of its Brink Risk Solutions magazine (Summer 2014) to diagnosis. You can download it from this link http://www.mmicgroup.com/pdf/MMIC_BrinkMagazine_2014%20Summer.pdf

Sadly, hospitals and hospital risk managers have been mostly absent from discussion or action on diagnostic error in medicine.

There are signs this may be changing.  

Today ECRI published a short article titled,“The Difficulties in Defining and Preventing Diagnostic Errors”.

Subscribers may link to ECRI Institute Healthcare Risk Alerts at www.ecri.org

 

The ECRI article references another article in the July issue of Journal of Healthcare Risk Management, a publication of ASHRM, the Association of Healthcare Risk Managers, which came into being with the assistance of the American Hospital Association.


The Journal of Healthcare Risk Mgt article is titled “Diagnostic error: Untapped potential for improving patient safety?” The abstract may be viewed at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/enhanced/doi/10.1002/jhrm.21149/
