2019 Diagnostic Management Team (DMT) Conference, March 5–6, 2019
Galveston Island Convention Center, Galveston, Texas, USA

I am delighted to invite you to the 3rd annual diagnostic management team meeting. Our focus is the barriers that exist for the rapid and significant growth of diagnostic management teams to reduce medical error and optimize laboratory test use. These 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.  We will feature 3 diagnostic management teams--microbiology, hematopathology, and platelet refractoriness. There are a number of other presentations, most noteworthy will be a presentation by a member of the public who is aware of the benefit of experts to other physicians. We will discuss with the audience how little patients know about not having expert input on their cases.
