MAPS PSO Diagnostic Error Efforts

We’re pledging to improve diagnostic accuracy as part of the ACT for Better Diagnosis™ initiative. The Coalition is working together to identify and spread practical steps that everyone—patients, clinicians, health systems, and others—can take to better ensure that the complex science of diagnosis is Accurate, Communicated, and Timely.

As a part of this initiative, MAPS has held webinars and provided resources to its members to discuss this complex issue. Read more...

Tell us what you are doing to improve diagnosis, tweet it out using #betterdiagnosis. To learn more about ACT for Better Diagnosis or how to get involved, visit www.BetterDiagnosis.org.  Let's join forces to discuss diagnostic errors and become involved in this effort.

We are encouraging all healthcare providers to organize teams and take advantage of opportunities to identify diagnostic errors and collaborate on identifying missed opportunities.  In the future, visit this web page to see updated information.
