Diagnostic Management focus of live video chat tomorrow

Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s initiatives in diagnostic management will be highlighted during a live video chat with VUMC experts on Wednesday, April 3.

Clinicians, especially hematologists and oncologists, across the country are invited to join the chat, Improving Diagnostic Accuracy in a World of Complex Testing, and to submit their questions about VUMC’s new approach to testing and diagnosing hematologic malignancies.

The diagnostic management approach is empowering physicians to navigate the evolving medical landscape and determine the right tests at the right time, every time. Goals are to improve care, eliminate waste and strengthen collaboration.

The chat, from 4-4:30 p.m., will be hosted by VUMC’s Jim Jirjis, M.D., chief medical information officer at VUMC. Panelists will be Mary Zutter, M.D., assistant vice chancellor for Integrative Diagnostics, and Madan Jagasia, MBBS, chief of the section of Hematology-Stem Cell Transplant.

The discussion is part of the My Health Chat interactive video series. Register for the chat and view the archives at MyHealthChat.com.
