Diagnostic Management Team (DMT)

Thank you for participating in the inaugural Diagnostic Management Team Conference 2017. The amount of participation both at the meeting and through social media has been immense. We would be delighted to hear your suggestions for a future meeting, and if you have any requests about our 2017 meeting, please feel free to send them to us. Wishing you all the best from the Organizing Committee, Mike

Diagnostic Management Team (DMT) consultation services have been endorsed by the National Academy of Medicine, formerly the Institute of Medicine, in September, 2015, as a mechanism to reduce diagnostic error in the United States. This is a quantum leap forward for our patients and providers alike.

In this first ever conference on the diagnostic management team, the activities associated with these teams will be described and the function of one particular diagnostic management team will be illustrated in a mock session. Individuals who have addressed each one of the barriers listed above are speaking at the conference. Those emerging from this one and a half day conference should have enough information to initiate an effective diagnostic management team, and will have had the opportunity to meet individuals who have faced barriers in DMT development and overcome them.

We have added a special feature to the meeting which will occur on the second day. There are many practices which provide real time, patient specific expert driven advice on laboratory test selection and result interpretation. If you are attending the meeting and have a practice which meets these three specific criteria (real time, patient specific, expert driven), and would like to deliver a 5 minute presentation with 5 minutes for questions, we have an opportunity for you to do that. Please complete the form that identifies you and provides a 5-10 sentence description of your DMT activity. We will be able to accommodate only about 10 presentations. Download the form here and email it info@dmtconference.com
