Inaccurate or delayed diagnoses are the most catastrophic and costly of medical errors and will affect most of us in our lifetime. The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM)<> will release new research quantifying the magnitude of the issue and pinpoint the specific disease categories in which inaccurate or delayed diagnoses are most likely to occur. The research will be released online in the peer-reviewed journal, Diagnosis.

The findings suggest potential areas of focus for future research and interventions at a time when the federal government is taking inaccurate and delayed diagnosis seriously. In fact, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has made the reduction of diagnostic errors one of its three strategic priorities.

Experts will offer insights on what can be done to reduce the impact and highlight Congress' role in reducing the physical and financial toll that inaccurate and delayed diagnoses take on Americans.
