The 7 Steps to Digital Pathology
Posted 31st August 2018 by Jane Williams
“There’s nothing wrong with the microscope.”
“Our Information Systems won’t integrate with other technology.”
“Change is hard.”
These are a couple of the concerns pathologists have about digital pathology. But as they learn more, pathologists are finding that their apprehension about going digital is holding them back from reaping significant benefits. They are also discovering that old methods can’t compete against today’s digital solutions.
The evolution can seem daunting, even to those who realise that digital methods offer increased speed, accuracy, efficiency and collaboration, but best practices and expert resources are available to help.
Using a digital pathology workflow offers many benefits. These are just a few:
- Image quality and improved accuracy
- Faster speed to results and improved workflow
- Cost savings versus shipping slides
- Better innovation and real-time collaboration
- Easy access to archived slides, improved analysis and insight mining
The process of embracing digital pathology can transform an organisation. So, it is important to know the steps and how to get started.
