Digital Pathology, AI and Image Analysis for Cost Reduction and Increased Business
Digital pathology is quickly becoming a proven and standard technology, significantly contributing to the reduction of laboratory expenses, improvements in operational efficiencies, increased productivity, and providing faster, more accurate diagnosis, treatment decisions and patient care. All of these benefits provide the lab with a better ROI, improved turn-around times, enhanced safety and customer and patient satisfaction. But, in this unprecedented year - let's just call it 2020 - how do you maintain your bottom line? As labs begin to return to a near normal level of pre-pandemic volumes there is still recovery of lost revenue to consider in addition to filling any gaps for lower volumes.
Digital Pathology provides the opportunity for incremental business with telepathology through secondary consults, expanded reach into remote areas, the ability to efficiently source (and route cases) based upon available resources, regardless of location. The reduction in the expense of transporting slides and/or the overnight delivery of slides goes directly to the profit line. There are many other areas of efficiency gains where reduction in staff expenses, breakage, time lost due to pulling and hunting down slides, etc all go to faster turn-around times (ie: faster time to reimbursement) and lower overall cost. Incorporating AI and Image analysis directly within the pathologists workflow also helps with eliminating the well-known, read twice - get reimbursed once.
Our presentation will touch on all of these issues, highlighting the speed, ease of use and ability to expand your business during these times and to show how you will be well prepared for a return to normal or an adjustment to our new normal post pandemic.
