“CRICO has long been focused on understanding the key drivers of diagnostic error and patient harm,” says Dana Siegal, RN, CPHRM, Director of Patient Safety of CRICO Strategies. Siegal also serves on the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) Board of Directors. Siegal continued, “We welcome the light that the IOM has shone on the critical issues of diagnostic error and are especially encouraged by its recommendation that medical professional liability insurers collaborate with health care professionals to improve the diagnostic process through education, training, and practice improvement.”
