Thousands of children are harmed each year by diagnostic errors. Pediatric clinics nationwide are invited to submit a recruitment application to participate in a first-of-its-kind quality improvement project aimed at reducing pediatric diagnostic errors related to

  1. Missed elevated blood pressure
  2. Missed (select) actionable labs
  3. Missed opportunity to diagnose adolescent depression

The American Academy of Pediatrics Practice Improvement Network (PIN) Reducing Diagnostic Errors in Primary Care Pediatrics (Project RedDE!) is seeking clinic teams that have 30 well-visit encounters with patients 11 years old and above, as well as 30 well visits with patients 3 years old and older per month. The ability to query your EHR and/or billing system to pull charts for this 2 ½ year project is helpful to team participation.


Priority will be given to applications completed by June 3, 2015.
