Enabling Interoperability for Digital and Computational Pathology in the Age of Artificial Intelligence – Current Status and Future Directions
Thursday, April 22 | 11 AM - 12 PM Eastern
The DICOM standard for digital pathology has come a long way since its inception. The IHE Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (PaLM) domain has formulated a digital pathology workflow based on DICOM, the first standard-based commercial products are emerging on the market, and early adopters are implementing the standard in hospitals. Yet, interoperability in digital and computational pathology is still more vision than reality.
With the increase in digital review and remote sign-out during the pandemic and the accelerated adoption of artificial intelligence, vendors and healthcare providers more than ever find themselves in need for establishing digital and computational pathology workflows based on interoperable modular components that enable the exchange of data between different systems and across laboratory boundaries. While there is broad consensus in the field on the need for improved standardization, it is less clear how the incentives of vendors and hospitals can be aligned to realize interoperability in practice.
In this webinar, a panel of international experts from industry and healthcare will share their unique experiences and perspectives, discuss their motivations for investing into standardization and commitment to developing interoperable solutions, and outline their vision for collaborative standard development in the pre-competitive space with active participation from multiple stakeholder groups.
