  • 1.  Seeking listening session participants for PCORI-funded TeleDX project

    Posted 10-29-2020 13:18

    Dear SIDM Colleagues and Friends:

    SIDM recently received an award from PCORI (The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute) to host a series of listening sessions on the use of telemedicine for the purpose of diagnosis.  While the framing for this project is the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, please note that our focus is on diagnosis, broadly, not on the diagnosis of the COVID virus itself.

    We are seeking the following types of participants for the listening sessions. [Please DO NOT respond to this email; please send your nominations, with their contact information, to Suz.Schrandt@Improvediagnosis.org or graber.mark@gmail.com.]

    • Clinicians who are using telemedicine for diagnosis.
    • Individuals responsible for establishing and using telemedicine in small and large clinical practices (anywhere from 50+ clinical staff to fewer than 3 clinical staff).
    • Individuals responsible for the telemedicine programs at small and large hospitals (anywhere from 500+ beds to fewer than 100 beds).
    • Individuals from telemedicine companies.

    You are also very welcome to volunteer yourself for any of these categories.


    Thank you so much for your contributions!

    Thanks Suzanne,

    Passed the information on to a colleague who has recently become involved in 

    A good program.

    Do learning tests exist for persons involved in telemedicine that focus on diagnoses exist?

    I suppose you could use acting patients or even make believe persons!

    Could focus on the main conditions missed in each specialty?

    Suspect that already exists.
