System looks at ways to track misdiagnosis rate

When Texas patients go to the doctor, they expect to receive correct answers and diagnoses that fit their conditions. A misdiagnosis can endanger the health of a patient, leading to disability or even death when incorrect treatments are applied or an underlying serious illness goes untreated.

Treating sepsis

About 1 to 3 million people throughout Texas and the rest of the nation receive a diagnosis of sepsis every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Up to 30 percent of those people will die from the condition.

Conditions that are commonly misdiagnosed

In Texas and across the U.S., millions live with undiagnosed cancer. Unfortunately, missed diagnoses will increase the chances of failed treatments and death. Though cancer is the one condition that's most frequently misdiagnosed, there are many more to watch out for.
