UCSD SureNet: Systems Science and Diagnostic Safety (Incidental Plumonary Nodules)


Project Description

The SureNet program identifies test results or symptoms/signs that generally require follow up but the patients do not appear to have had the needed follow up. It thus potentially prevents diagnostic errors by preventing patients from “falling through the cracks." It is limited to diseases in which their time course of progression is slow enough that one can take a few weeks to identify the cases and intervene.  Here, the target population was where there were identified pulmonary nodules that are greater than 4mm in size.
