Diagnostic error in the ambulatory care setting is common, particularly with regard to missed or delayed diagnoses of cancer. This study used human factors engineering and design thinking approaches to develop an understanding of how ambulatory specialists monitor patients with high-risk conditions and to identify vulnerabilities in the monitoring process that could lead to delayed diagnoses.
