Diagnostic Network Optimization (DNO) Objectives, Definition, and Key Principles and Approach

October 29, 2019

Diagnostic network optimization is an exercise that aims to redesign the diagnostic network set-up in order to increase access, maximize impact, and generate efficiencies. It aligns testing demand and capacity in the most cost-effective way by defining the optimal instruments mix, identifying the most appropriate locations where instruments should be placed, and designing the referral network linkages across that revised network. This document outlines the DNO objectives, definition, and key principles and approach.
