We have to have data from that encounter and then outcomes data to know. As for the encounter, EHR should give you all the PHx and FHx without your having to ask again.

Subject: [IMPROVEDX] A question - the primary complaint

I have noticed that physicians when seeing a patient in an office setting often focus on the primary complaint with laser like enthusiasm, almost to the exclusion of anything else.

I suspect this is mainly related to time restraints.

However, in the big scheme of things is the past history, family history, drug allergies, etc. etc. that important?

In terms of a wrong diagnosis, or bad outcome, is this a small, intermediate or large problem in the number of diagnostic errors made?
