I was honored to give the keynote address this week at the new Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute's Center for Diagnostic Excellence.  The Center hosted its inaugural "Diagnostic Excellence Summit" in Baltimore, highlighting the goals of the new center, and the projects already underway and planned.   The Center is the first “center of excellence” in the country focused on improving the quality, safety, and value of diagnosis.   David Newman-Toker MD PhD, a founding Board member of the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine, is the Center Director.

The Center encompasses 4 Core areas (Education, Methods, Analytics, and Team-focused care) and focuses on the 3 most-common conditions in diagnostic error-related malpractice claims: Infections, cardiovascular conditions, and cancer.  Each core area and team includes 3-10 members involved in diagnosis-related projects, and research projects are underway in each of the 3 disease-focused areas.

Besides its focused projects, the Center has established a facilitated way for clinicians to report diagnostic errors in practice through a desktop icon on the EMR.

Congratulations to David and his colleagues.  We will all be looking forward to the progress the Center promotes.
