Safety event reporting is an essential component of any healthcare and hospital system’s efforts to improve patient safety by helping to identify trends and prioritize improvements. While safety event reporting has a long history in health care, its use in the diagnostic space has been considerably more limited and disparately utilized across organizations.
Registration is now open for the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine's (SIDM) Diagnostic Error in Medicine 14th Annual International Conference (SIDM2021), happening virtually October 25-27, 2021. Earn CME/CNE credits while exploring this year's theme, "Reducing Disparities; Improving Diagnosis."

Recent news stories deliver apparently contradictory messages about AI: future prospects leading to lucrative business deals on the one hand and disappointing performance prompting protests and lawsuits on the other. Expectations remain high that AI will continue to transform many aspects of daily life, including health care. At the same time, AI algorithms have produced results biased against women and people of color, prompting disillusionment and reassessment.
Meet Colorado Hospital Association, MHA Keystone Center and National Association for Healthcare Quality! Learn more about each organization and what they are doing to address diagnostic quality and safety in our latest issue of ACT Update.
Constellation and SIDM have established a Collaborative focused on improving the diagnostic process during two of the three key stages of the diagnostic process: tests and results processing and follow-up and coordination. Clinic, hospital, and health system teams interested in improving the diagnostic process are encouraged to join the Collaborative and access virtual education sessions, webinars, coaching calls, and meetings.
An old joke goes, aging is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. However, it matters very much when aging gets in the way of an accurate diagnosis. Seniors are misdiagnosed more often than younger adults and can be harmed more by it than younger bodies are. Read our latest Dx IQ Column to learn more.
Are you interested in conducting diagnostic comparative effectiveness research (CER), but you don’t know where to start? SIDM's resources and tools can help you translate your issue or topic into a CER question and identify opportunities and methods to co-create your research concept with patient research partners.
SIDM has released two new guides for hospitals and health systems in reducing harm from diagnostic errors, leveraging the lived-experience, insights and expertise of Patient Family Advisory Councils (PFACs).
One in 10 people (9.6%) with symptoms caused by a major vascular event, infection, or cancer will be misdiagnosed, according to a study from researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and CRICO Strategies.
Many of our Coalition to Improve Diagnosis members are on the front lines working diligently to test and diagnose patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to provide timely and useful information regarding COVID-19, our members have developed a wide range of resources, including toolkits, live chats, webinars, community groups and more.
New Implementation Guide Focuses on Transforming Education of Diagnostic Reasoning

Conversations with Hospitals, Health Systems & Clinical Practices on Telediagnosis
Although telemedicine has been available for decades, the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed its usage overnight. SIDM is leading an effort to capture and synthesize information about the early successes, the greatest challenges, and the most critical unanswered questions in the use of TeleDx.
