Framework for Measuring Diagnostic Error

A new AHRQ-supported report published in BMJ Quality & Safety describes a conceptual model called the "Safer Dx Framework" that is designed to systematically measure & monitor diagnostic errors. It examines diagnostic safety from three perspectives: variables within the environment in which diagnoses take place (such as the internal physical/organizational medical setting), the process for making diagnoses (such as interpersonal aspects between clinician/patient), & patient outcomes (patient health status or behavior).
