On September 22, 2015, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a new report titled “Improving Diagnosis in Health Care.” This continues the series of reports that began in 1999, the first being “To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System.”
The National Academies Press is currently offering a prepublication print copy for sale, or you can pre-order a paperback. But there are also several free options: you can read it online in HTML format, or download a copy in PDF format. To download a PDF you can either create a free MyNAP account or download it as a guest.
