> This webinar presents perspectives on using health IT to reduce errors and harms associated with diagnostic errors, including how health IT can be leveraged to support diagnostic decision-making and follow-up of diagnostic information such as abnormal test results. In the first presentation, Mr. Jason Maude will discuss how online diagnostic decision support systems are practical tools to help both clinicians and patients with getting to the right diagnosis more quickly. In the second presentation, Dr. Hardeep Singh will discuss measurement and reduction of missed opportunities in diagnosis in the context of an electronic health record-enabled health care environment and emphasize lessons learned from patient safety research in this area.  In the third presentation, Dr. Michael Kanter will discuss using health IT as a safety net for diagnostic errors. He will discuss the use of technology to identify lapses in the diagnostic process and discuss how health IT can be used to build system interventions to prevent patient harm from delayed diagnosis.
