New research on measuring diagnostic performance

We wanted to share that the Human Diagnosis Project was featured in a new JAMA
Open study
<> on
diagnostic performance (also attached). Researchers from Johns Hopkins,
NIH, and other top institutions studied our clinical case series (called Global
Morning Report <>) and found it to be an
objective and rapid measurement of physicians' and trainees' diagnostic

This has exciting implications for improving clinical reasoning and
potentially reducing diagnostic error. For decades, the medical community
has relied on multiple choice tests and direct observation to estimate
clinical reasoning competence; there hasn't been a more scalable and
objective, evidence-based, and real-time method. By solving quick and
engaging case simulations, physicians and trainees can now more easily
gauge their competence and monitor their improvement. These cases are
freely accessible to any medical professional on our open access online
platform at

Please let us know if you have any questions, and share the research with
others who may be interested.

Kind regards,

The Human Diagnosis Project.
One open system.
For all of humankind.
