Digital Pathology is a promising key factor to improve the healthcare system. Various technologies have been designed over the last decade to provide greater value and support in patient management. Following these reasons, many laboratories and research centres have begun incorporating digital pathology in their work. For instance, digital applications are now salient in elevating productivity, encouraging cost reduction, maximising revenue and providing greater accuracy in decision making which in turn, improve clinical practices. With these benefits, it is evident that the use of digital pathology tools is essential in changing the way pathologists work and enabling enhanced patient treatment.
This year, Global Engage is proud to host the 3rd Digital Pathology Congress Asia on the 11th and 12th of September 2017 in Shanghai, China. This event will highlight comprehensive understanding and reciprocal benefits of adopting digital pathology as well as the business case to be made for it. More than 200 industry and academic experts expected over the 2-day event will have the opportunity to take home cutting edge strategies and analysis techniques to utilise digital pathology to its greatest potential.
