I’m just returning from an excellent Coverys 2019 Risk Management Summit in Ann Arbor, MI, and was impressed by several things all pointing to increased interest in addressing diagnostic error:

  1.  Of the 12 major talks, 3 focused on diagnostic error (myself, Chris Goeschel, Hardeep Singh)

  1.  Coverys as an organization has (with great thanks to Geri Amori for spearheading their interest in diagnosis)

  *   Published white papers on the magnitude of the problem from their malpractice data (two attached), and
  *   Is currently funding 10 pilot projects for organizations to trial interventions to reduce diagnostic error

  1.  One of the attendees, Melissa DeMayo RN BSN MSN of Signature Healthcare in Brockton, MA reported that clinicians at her organization wear the attached ‘badge buddy’, inspired by their former Chief of Medical Education, Dr Dale Ellenberg.  Seems like a GREAT way to prevent and catch diagnostic errors.  Thanks Melissa !
