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.
