Diagnostic errors are a major concern of both patients and clinicians. In a recent survey, more than one half of patients said they were very concerned about being diagnosed properly when they see a healthcare provider in an outpatient setting. In addition, clinicians consistently report encountering diagnostic errors. Moreover, compared with all safety concerns inherent to patient care, providers worry that diagnostic errors are most likely to cause serious harm or death.
