Minimizing Diagnosis Errors with eHealth

 Robert El-Kareh, MD MPH
Description: Diagnosis errors are more common than often thought. 1 in 6 patients polled claimed to have experienced a diagnosis error. 8-24% of autopsies show major diagnosis error. 18% of patients with laboratory evidence of diabetes have no mention of it in record. Failure to follow up on test results returning post-discharge can delay therapy. One study showed that physicians were unaware of 60% of actionable test results.
