Experts become so by having timely and accurate feedback on their performance.  With the demise of autopsies, we’ve lost the the powerful feedback that the post-mortem provided.  If our goal is to improve diagnostic performance, we need high-quality feedback, and more of it.

HIPAA provisions create an ethical hurdle in this regard – we could learn a great deal from following-up on patients seen previously, but when does this violate the ethical imperative to respect the patient’s privacy?  This article published in the “ACP Internist” explores this issue.
