The third annual Diagnostic Management Team meeting will be held March 5–6 at the Galveston Island Convention Center, in Galveston, Tex. The focus of the meeting is on the barriers that exist for the rapid and significant growth of diagnostic management teams to reduce medical error and optimize laboratory test use.
Barriers include communication and conductivity limitations, insufficient payment for consultation services by the DMT, an inadequate number of individuals able to lead a DMT, and the cultural barriers that prevent established laboratory directors from becoming DMT leaders. The two-day event will feature three diagnostic management teams—microbiology, hematopathology, and platelet refractoriness—and includes speakers, poster presentations, and a panel discussion and will close with a live webinar.
