The Coalition to Improve Diagnosis ( is conducting a survey to identify effective tools or interventions intended to improve diagnostic performance or reduce harm associated with diagnostic error. For our purposes here, we define tool as an intervention that helps users accomplish a specific diagnostic task. The following list provides some examples that illustrate relevant tools or interventions:


·       Measures and a process to collect data
·       Trigger tools
·       Checklist
·       Simulation software
·       Patient or healthcare professional educational programs and materials
·       Practice/strategy such as a diagnostic time-out
·       Grand rounds focused on diagnostic error
·       Root cause analysis focused on diagnostic error
