Diagnostic errors are an emerging area of patient safety research; as such, innovative methods to identify and prevent diagnostic errors are being developed. This commentary describes the development, implementation, and sustainment of a novel method of investigation. The e-Autopsy/e-Biopsy method includes dedicated patient safety staff and volunteer clinical specialists to review events and identify trends. The process is illustrated with three diagnoses: ectopic pregnancy, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and advanced colon cancer.
