I think it would be really good idea to have one person charged with driving the dx improvement process. Having a champion within an organisation is crucial to implementing tools and keeping the momentum going. That person would need to be a senior physician to have credibility and, very important, should also have their own meaningful budget.

Subject: [IMPROVEDX] Musings: DxImprovement Officer


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?
