Diagnostic Errors: Overview, Analysis, and Emerging Risks — A 10-Year Claims Analysis

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.


Presentation #2  (1hr CME)

Diagnostic Errors: Contributing Factors and Risk Strategies — A 10-Year Claims Analysis

The diagnostic process often includes multiple steps over the course of time. Errors that occur during this process may go unrecognized, despite the fact that these errors are common, more likely to harm    patients than other types of errors, and often preventable.  Understanding how diagnostic errors occur and addressing root causes are key strategies to improving patient safety and reducing liability exposure.

This program reviews trends in diagnosis-related malpractice allegations and examines the risk factors that contribute to diagnostic errors across the healthcare continuum. A variety of risk strategies designed to reduce diagnostic errors are presented along with best practices related to patient assessment, documentation, and follow-up.
