  • Diagnosis has important implications for patient care, research, and policy. (
  • Diagnosis has been described as both a process and a classification scheme, or a "pre-existing set of categories agreed upon by the medical profession to designate a specific condition" (Jutel, 2009). (
  • 1 When a diagnosis is accurate and made in a timely manner, a patient has the best opportunity for a positive health outcome because clinical decision making will be tailored to a correct understanding of the patient's health problem (Holmboe and Durning, 2014). (
  • 1 In this report, the committee employs the terminology "the diagnostic process" to convey diagnosis as a process. (
  • The committee's depiction of the diagnostic process draws on an adaptation of a decision-making model that describes the cyclical process of information gathering, information integration and interpretation, and forming a working diagnosis (Parasuraman et al. (

  • Since it is often difficult to apply evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) directly to the care of individual patients, clinicians use clinical judgment to decide whether trial results are applicable to an individual patient. (
  • 3,4 It is likely that the informal approaches being used by clinicians and patients to personalize care are flawed and can be improved. (
  • The investigators hypothesize that information of good quality on this concern might be accessible at a relatively low cost from patients, further referred to as sentinel patients, who would voluntary report their health evolution on a dedicated web site. (

  • Telephone care programs are a viable strategy for bringing diabetes management services into patients' homes and improving their glycemic control ( 5 , 6 ). (
  • Findings from multiple studies indicate that chronically ill patients will participate in ATDM and that the information they report during ATDM assessments is at least as reliable as information obtained via structured clinical interviews or medical record reviews ( 7 , 8 , 9 ). (
  • This is all the more important, since empirical evidence indicates that about 30% of mental health patients fail to respond during clinical trials and 65% of patients in routine care leave treatment without a measured benefit [ 11 ]. (
