How Can AI Improve Patient Safety In the ED Now
With AI, emergency departments can improve diagnostic certainty and reduce the number of adverse patient safety events resulting from a missed or delay in diagnosis. According to Medscape, 26% of emergency medicine physicians say they make diagnostic errors every day. For many years, malpractice claims have provided the only insight into understanding diagnostic error, and these claims significantly underrepresent the magnitude of the diagnostic error problem. As organizations face rapid changes related to hospital liability, a hardening market, and the impact of COVID-19, advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are reducing diagnostic errors and driving better clinical alignment around the highest risks.
