Description of Program Content:
Implementation of Diagnostic Management Teams (DMTs), multidisciplinary teams of clinical experts whose role is to deploy evidence-based diagnostic testing algorithms and patient-specific interpretive reports, may reduce laboratory and, ultimately, diagnostic error.  This talk will discuss the epidemic of laboratory error and how DMTs reduce this error.  Using the example of a DMT focused on hypertension, the session will summarize methods for successfully implementing a diagnostic management team.
