DSM’s vision is to create a patient-first environment that provides quality laboratory and diagnostic imaging services supporting the health care needs of all Manitobans. That means we need to work closely with medical practitioners across the province to ensure relevant and timely diagnostic services to help you in make the diagnoses upon which you base treatment decisions.

When it is necessary for DSM to make changes to its test menu or some aspect of the testing process, we issue Physician Alerts or Clinical Practice Updates. To ensure that you are kept up to date, we encourage you to subscribe to our alert system so the information is delivered right to your inbox.

DSM also issues a Medical Services newsletter where we keep our partners up-to-date on current developments within DSM and diagnostics in Manitoba. If you would like to receive this publication, please check the applicable box.
