CLMA - Impact of Laboratory Services on Diagnostic Errors

Paul L Epner

CLMA Body of Knowledge Domains: Quality and Safety, Medical Decision Support, Information Technology

Diagnostic errors by clinicians have been increasingly recognized as a source of patient dissatisfaction and increased healthcare costs. Although research has helped determine the sources of diagnostic error, the role of laboratory services has not received significant attention. In this session, information about the science of diagnostic errors will be presented and opportunities for laboratory professionals to improve patient outcomes through interventions that reduce the risk of diagnostic errors will be described.
