Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) envisions a world where diagnosis is accurate, timely, and efficient. Co-founded in 2012, SIDM has successfully elevated awareness of diagnostic error to the national stage, and caught the attention of individuals and organizations that are now working with us to begin addressing the problem. The challenge now will be to channel the energies towards achieving real changes in how physicians and patients proceed through the diagnostic process, changes in medical education programs to include content on error reduction, and research to begin studying which interventions are most effective.
VISION: Creating a world where no patients are harmed by diagnostic error.
MISSION: The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine catalyzes and leads change to improve diagnosis and eliminate harm from diagnostic error, in partnership with patients, their families, the healthcare community and every interested stakeholder.
