Communication-and-resolution programs underscore the importance of early disclosure of medical error to patients and families. Prior research highlights implementation challenges associated with these efforts. Investigators analyzed 125 adverse event cases from 5 New York City hospitals over a 22-month period following the implementation of communication-and-resolution programs. The majority of cases did not involve substandard care, and disclosure occurred in more than 90% of cases.
