06/29/2021 - Diagnostic informatics: The role of digital health in diagnostic stewardship and the achievement of excellence, safety, and value

This mini review article published in the journal Frontiers in Digital Health outlines the field of "diagnostic informatics," one that uses "digital health tools to facilitate the accuracy and timeliness of health information transfer and enhance the effectiveness of the decision-making processes." Georgiou et al. focus on three primary aspects of diagnostic informatics: diagnostic errors and associated research, safety and efficacy of test result and follow-up management, and the enhancement of clinical decision support systems. The authors succinctly discuss these three aspects and then provide brief discussion about their findings. They close by noting that for the digital health tools of diagnostic informatics to prove most useful, they must consider the importance of patient-centered care, existing diagnostic processes in use, and of course the critical organizational communication processes in use.
