[Enterprise Imaging Strategies] Pivoting to Digital Pathology: Inside University Hospitals’ Journey

With a need to have access to clinical images across the health system, some hospitals and health systems are blazing a trail to add digital pathology to the mix. See how University Hospitals’ pathology department has gotten pathologists fluent and confident in digital pathology. And how their team has united pathology PACS with radiology PACS for breast rad-path MDT meetings. The way the experts see it, we are on the brink of myriad of benefits: expanding the reach of pathologists, improving quality of work and quality of care, cutting patient wait times, streamlining multi-disciplinary team meetings and offering more data rich decision-making.
