Daniel Yang (Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation)

Daniel Yang M.D. is a program director of Patient Care at the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation where he established the Diagnostic Excellence Initiative, which plans to invest $85 million in grant funding over six years. The initiative aims to reduce harm from erroneous or delayed diagnoses, reduce costs and redundancy in the diagnostic process and improve patients outcomes through timely, accurate, efficient, equitable and patient-centered diagnoses. The initiative is focused on three clinical categories of diseases that contribute to a disproportionate share of harm from suboptimal diagnosis including acute vascular events, infections and cancer. Daniel is also a practicing hospitalist and a board-certified internal medicine physician. He completed his residency training at the University of California, San Francisco. He subsequently completed a fellowship in health care systems design at Stanford University's Clinical Excellence Research Center.
