Improving diagnosis will not happen overnight, but the most prominent organizations in healthcare and patient advocacy are working together to identify how to improve diagnosis and make care safer.
Led by the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine, the Coalition to Improve Diagnosis increases awareness and promotes actions that can improve diagnosis. The organizations behind ACT for Better DiagnosisTM represent healthcare providers and patients—as well as the leading health organizations involved in patient care. Together, the coalition is working to find solutions that enhance diagnostic safety and quality, reduce harm, and ultimately ensure better health outcomes for patients.
