Colleagues: Interested in addressing diagnostic error in your organization? Please consider applying to become a member of the first SIDM-IHI collaborative to develop and prototype interventions in your own practice setting. There are 2 weeks left - we look forward to hearing from you!
The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), with funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, are jointly sponsoring a prototyping collaborative project that will engage six selected healthcare organizations to trial one or more interventions aimed at improving the diagnostic process and its outcomes.
The National Academy of Medicine’s landmark report, Improving Diagnosis in Health Care, identified diagnostic error as a major, unaddressed patient safety issue, noting that “most people will experience at least one diagnostic error in their lifetime, sometimes with devastating consequences.” The SIDM-IHI initiative will directly address one of the major goals from the report, to “Develop and deploy approaches to identify, learn from, and reduce diagnostic errors and near misses in clinical practice.”
The selected healthcare organizations will each be asked to join a 6-month collaborative during which they will learn improvement skills and test one or more interventions to reduce diagnostic error. Using the unique “IHI Collaborative” approach that has successfully advanced safety and quality work over the past decade, the participating organizations will work and learn together in this effort, sharing problems, insights, and lessons learned.
Organizations selected for participation in the collaborative will receive a stipend of $15,000 to help offset costs related to project management and oversight. The travel costs of individuals will be paid to attend the expert panel meeting and learning sessions.
Project staff will be encouraged to publish the results of their intervention independently, and will be included as authors on any publications that describe their projects authored by SIDM-IHI staff.
US healthcare organizations providing either inpatient or ambulatory services, or both.
