In the U.S., the rate of diagnostic error is estimated to be between 10 to 20% of all cases, accounting for 40,000 – 80,000 deaths per year. Research by Johns Hopkins indicates that over the past 25 years of malpractice claims studied, diagnostic errors accounted for nearly 29% of insurance claims at a cost of almost $40 billion.

Partnership with QualityStar

XIFIN, Inc has an agreement with QualityStar®, a leading provider of anatomic pathology quality assurance services, to market its cloud-based case review service to help reduce interpretive diagnostic errors and improve patient care.

XIFIN will offer QualityStar’s anatomic pathology case review service as an app on the XIFIN ProNet™ physician collaboration portal of its Health Economics Optimization platform to facilitate the confidential, HIPAA-compliant and secure exchange of cases for QA review by QualityStar’s national network of NIH/NCI-designated cancer centers and sub-specialty pathologists. XIFIN ProNet is a leading online exchange providing pathologists crucial capabilities that are transforming pathology services and patient treatment by allowing pathologists to collaborate, consult and communicate to improve health outcomes.

The CAP/ADASP expert panel findings on target case reviews report a median 18% discrepancy rate and 6.3% major discrepancy rate for surgical pathology diagnosis. We believe our collaboration with XIFIN will help bring a significant improvement in the quality of diagnostics by enabling implementation of the new CAP guidelines for QA to help reduce interpretive diagnostic errors.
