Hi Mark, as part of our work in the practice group discussing diagnostic error we are looking further at referral – has anyone to your knowledge discussed a “referring wisely” campaign?  I know it would be an uphill battle to decide guidelines, etc. but it seems a number of closed claims related to diagnostic issues are delay of appropriate referral and there is a good deal of anecdotal discussion about inappropriate referral.

The Leapfrog Group<http://www.leapfroggroup.org/>, an active member of the Coalition to Improve Diagnosis<http://www.improvediagnosis.org/?page=CID>, is considering a potential future standard regarding diagnostic error on its annual survey of its 1800 member hospitals and organizations.  This past month they sponsored a national teleconference on diagnostic error, presented by David Newman-Toker MD PhD and Mark L Graber, MD.

As part of this program, Leapfrog is encouraging their member organizations to participate in a SIDM survey that will provide hospitals with a ‘check-up’ of where they are at culturally and structurally in their efforts to monitor and reduce diagnostic errors within their hospital.  The SIDM survey will help SIDM and Leapfrog understand the barriers that hospitals are facing in making progress in this important patient safety area.
If your organization is a member of the Leapfrog group, please encourage them to participate in this first-of-its-kind, 10 minute survey:
