On-Demand Diagnostic Error Webinar From HANYS and MLMIC Insurance Company

Diagnostic errors are a leading cause of professional liability claims against healthcare providers. The care environment, poor documentation, communication errors and implicit bias all contribute to errors in diagnoses leading to patient harm.

In June, MLMIC, in collaboration with HANYS, offered a cutting-edge new webinar entitled “Is To Err Still Human? Strategies to Reduce Diagnostic Error.” Al Anthony Mercado, Esq., managing attorney with Mercado May-Skinner, and Joyce McCormack, senior risk management consultant with MLMIC Insurance Company, discussed the leading contributing factors for diagnostic errors and offered risk management strategies to minimize the risk of malpractice claims in your organization. This webinar was so well-received that we have decided to offer it on demand.

Upon completion of this program viewers should be able to:

  • identify the leading contributing factors impacting diagnostic error;
  • discuss the impact of implicit bias on medical errors;
  • understand how communication errors impact patient care; and
  • implement risk management strategies to reduce the risk of diagnostic errors.

You can view the webinar here.
