FROM INDIVIDUAL SUCCESSES COMES SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS Letter from Leadership When we formed the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) in 2011, we didn’t know how large it would become or how great an impact it would make. We started with the single goal of creating a world where no patients are harmed by diagnostic error. We’ve made progress in meaningful and significant ways over the last eight years. SIDM was instrumental in the initiation, development, and release of the 2015 landmark National Academy of Medicine report, Improving Diagnosis in Medicine. That same year, we established the Coalition to Improve Diagnosis, which is now made up of more than 50 organizations committed to improving diagnosis. This year, one of four federal liaisons to our Coalition—Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)—prioritized reducing harm from diagnostic error as one of three essential areas to improve patient care. AHRQ demonstrated its commitment to improving diagnostic quality when it announced an $8.7 million contract to increase Diagnostic Safety and Capacity Building through its ACTION III network. This and other actions from our Coalition partners demonstrate real progress in the field. Our momentum continues to build, and in this report we reflect on a year that has been marked by great success: • In July, SIDM released new research that clearly established that diagnostic error is the most common, catastrophic, and costly of all medical errors. The release on Capitol Hill received significant television, radio, and print news coverage and reached millions. • The Diagnostic Error in Medicine 11th Annual International Conference in New Orleans had a record number of attendees and our international reach was reflected at the 2nd Australasian Diagnostic Error in Medicine Conference with more than 200 attendees. • Fifteen PAIRED patient partners were trained to participate in the design, execution, and dissemination of important new research in diagnostic quality—helping to ensure that patient perspectives drive the development of new research with a focus on outcomes that matter to patients. • SIDM released a comprehensive set of competencies designed to transform interdisciplinary medical education and training to ensure the next generation of healthcare professionals has the clinical reasoning and diagnostic skills needed to achieve improved diagnostic outcomes. • Our Fellowship in Diagnostic Excellence is building a cadre of researchers and educators who will propel the field of diagnostic quality and safety forward in new and exciting ways. • Congress took notice of our continued commitment to the issue and heeded the warning of SIDM and our partners. This year’s House appropriations bill proposed to increase dedicated funding for diagnostic quality and safety research to “not less than $4 million,” double the amount from last year. • Our peer-reviewed journal Diagnosis continues to gain readership and citations—influencing healthcare leaders in their understanding of the opportunities and challenges in building a culture of diagnostic quality. As we illustrate throughout this report, the sum of these individual successes is much greater than their parts. Our work has led to significant progress in the field in a very short period of time. We couldn’t have accomplished so much without the support and commitment of those who believe in our vision. Financial support for a young, non-profit charity is always a challenge. We are proud that funders have recognized our skills, expertise, and leadership in the field of diagnostic quality and safety. SIDM is grateful for the grants that have allowed us to advance this important work thus far. But those grants do not fully cover the cost of our core operations. We thank you for your past contributions, but need your continued support to achieve our mission. Together, we will create a world where no patient is harmed by diagnostic error.

“Diagnostic error, regardless of its cause, is a serious and complex problem that demands attention.”

SIDM’s awareness and engagement efforts have had long, lasting significance. Since SIDM’s formation, media coverage of the problem has grown considerably. The release of the Institute of Medicine (now National Academy of Medicine) report saw a significant spike in media coverage, and SIDM’s efforts to date are on track to surpass that mark.

RESEARCH Increase research on diagnosis and focus on diagnostic outcomes that matter to patients.

SUCCESSES SIDM advances the field of diagnostic quality research through publications, conferences, and bringing patients into the research design process through its novel PAIRED program. A new project, funded by Coverys, provides evidence and strategies to address disparities in diagnosis due to the visible factors of being female, a young adult, or African American. The project has a specific focus on the “big three” conditions responsible for the vast majority of diagnostic errors: cancer, vascular/heart, and infection. The peer-reviewed journal Diagnosis showcases developments in how diagnosis can be improved, how it is taught, and how and why it can fail, leading to diagnostic errors. SIDM commissioned new research into the causes and burden of diagnostic error that was released in July on Capitol Hill. The SIDM annual conference continues to see growth in poster and abstract submissions, and the Research Summit engaged nearly 100 researchers in the field.

MACY CURRICULUM DRIVER DIAGRAM

This year, SIDM unveiled competencies for diagnostic education that need to be embedded in teaching programs to improve diagnostic performance across all healthcare disciplines. As part of an Inter-Professional Consensus Curriculum on Diagnosis and Diagnostic Error, funded by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, 19 different programs currently pilot interventions to develop those competencies in their learners. In 2019, SIDM expanded its Fellowship in Diagnostic Excellence to include seven new fellows. They join a distinguished group of scholars influencing the fields of health professions education and research. SIDM launched the #TeachDx twitter chat in which learners, teachers, and scholars discuss how to embed clinical reasoning into training and at the bedside. Finally, the journal Diagnosis published a special issue highlighting initiatives transforming health professions education to improve diagnosis.

PRACTICE IMPROVEMENT

Engage patients, clinicians, and healthcare systems to improve current diagnostic performance and reduce harm from diagnostic error.

SUCCESSES While practice improvement has taken hold to address a number of problems in health care, diagnostic quality improvement initiatives are few and far between. SIDM has begun to educate hospitals, health systems, and quality improvement (QI) experts about this gap in the field. A member of SIDM’s staff has been trained as an Improvement Advisor, skilled in identifying, planning, and executing improvement projects throughout an organization and delivering successful results. We have developed QI tools around improving diagnosis and funded a small number of QI projects in diagnostic quality and safety. SIDM’s Change Package, developed with the Health Research and Education Trust (HRET), provides a specific framework for hospitals and health systems to implement strategies that will improve diagnostic quality and safety. This past year, SIDM held its first Quality Improvement Summit before the DEM conference showcasing how QI principles can be applied to diagnostic quality challenges. In addition, the six SIDM-funded sites that implemented QI projects at their institutions presented their learnings to the diagnostic quality community at DEM.

PATIENT ENGAGEMENT

Integrate patients and their families in all diagnostic improvement efforts.

SUCCESSES This year, SIDM launched the Dx IQ newsletter to help patients navigate the healthcare system and take an active role in the diagnostic process. Believing patients’ views should be central to the design and delivery of research, SIDM developed the Patients Improving Research in Diagnosis (PAIRED) program to create an innovative curriculum and train patient partners to participate in the design, execution, and dissemination of research to improve diagnosis. The PAIRED program has equipped patient leaders with the tools needed to inform the research community about risk points in the diagnostic process, empowering them to influence research. SIDM recently translated its patient toolkit into Spanish to better help people navigate their diagnostic journey. Finally, SIDM hosted a Patient Summit at the DEM Conference attended by more than 60 advocates and leaders in the field.
