Win­ning sup­port for di­ag­nos­tic soft­ware use

Modern Healthcare - - BEST PRACTICES -

Fo­cus ini­tial ef­forts on clin­i­cal ar­eas at high­est risk of di­ag­nos­tic er­ror, es­pe­cially the ICU and ED.

En­cour­age physi­cians to take a di­ag­nos­tic pause to ask: “Is there any­thing else to con­sider?”

Start at top of the hi­er­ar­chy: Res­i­dents of­ten feel un­com­fort­able chal­leng­ing se­nior staff.

Make soft­ware read­ily avail­able through elec­tronic health records, on tablets and on desk­tops.

Di­ag­no­sis-as­sist pro­grams are help­ful in man­ag­ing dif­fi­cult or rare cases.
