The prevalence of diagnostic errors frequently goes unrecognized, despite the fact that these errors are common, more likely to harm patients than other types of errors, and often are preventable. Diagnosing patients is a complex and challenging process, and issues associated with diagnostic errors span the healthcare continuum and affect all specialties.
This program explores the complexity of the diagnostic process and examines trends in diagnosis-related malpractice allegations. Data related to clinical and financial severity, responsible services, claimant characteristics, and clinical locations are included. Additionally, emerging risks and strategies to reduce risk exposures are discussed.
Upon completion of this activity, learners should be able to:
- Understand the complexity of the diagnostic process
- Discuss claims data and trends related to diagnostic errors
- Discuss emerging diagnosis-related risks
- Identify processes and systems that reduce and prevent diagnostic errors
