I spoke at the National Association of Healthcare Quality (NAHQ) this week, and listened to a presentation by a colleague of mine from ECRI. It was entitled ‘The Top 10 Patient Safety Concerns for 2018’.  For the first time Dx Error not only made the list, but topped it.

I spoke with my friend about their event /incident database which houses over 6 million incidents collected via their PSO nationally.  This DB is the basis for determining such Top 10 lists.

I asked her if SIDM could have access to this knowledge base for research purposes and she said they do have such accommodations.  I also asked if this list could be data mined to cull out only bad outcomes resulting from Dx Error and she said yes.

This would be a means of quickly identifying which bad outcomes to focus on per Rob Bells suggestion.

This is just an FYI as this is a pretty substantial database that is maintained very well to keep up the integrity of the data.

If this is worth checking out, let me know and I will connect you with my contact at ECRI.
