Register Now

Diagnostic error is one of the most important safety problems in healthcare today and inflicts the most harm. Results of the new analysis of national data found that across all clinical settings, including hospital and clinic-based care, an estimated 795,000 Americans die or are permanently disabled by diagnostic error each year, confirming the pressing nature of the public health problem.  One-third of malpractice cases that result in death or permanent disability stem from an inaccurate or delayed diagnosis, making it the number one cause of serious harms among medical errors.

In celebration of Healthcare Risk Management Week, we are honored to have a special guest presenter Dr. Divvy Upadhyay, Diagnostic Safety Program Leader at Geisinger. Divvy K. Upadhyay, MD, MPH is also the co-chair of the Practice Committee for the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM).
