I am sure list members are aware of the efforts in hospitals/health systems
to have an defined individual serve (ideally full time) as a mid-level
leader to coordinate specific areas of improvement across organizations:
patient safety officers are a top-of-mind example of this model. These roles
ideally have the authority and expertise to span boundaries between the
various improvement projects and levels of the organization (from front line
to C-Suite) to enhance collaboration, communication and learning. In
addition they actively provide their insights as needed through involvement
in investigations, committee work, and policy development (amongst other
things).

Does the group see that a similar role to help reduce Dxerror would be of
value?  Do we need a DxImprovement officer role? If so, what would/could its
unique contribution to dx error reduction be? What evidence could support
it?
