Missed Diagnosis and Patient Safety
Training through medical school, continuous professional development, and experience provides most physicians with the skills to make a correct and timely diagnosis and resolve patient concerns. Our healthcare systems are also equipped with powerful diagnostics resources with proven high accuracy to reduce the incidence of missed diagnoses. Despite all these factors, physicians do miss diagnoses with a negative implication for quality care and patient safety.
