This is a very interesting concept. 

Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever asked the question or sought an answer to the question: 

How many times does "Error in Diagnosis" show up on death certificates? If I were a betting person I would guess rare to never. 

As to the second "Error in Medicine" I would guess never. 

To change that one would need to change the culture of medicine.
