Choosing the Right Digital Pathology Workflow Partner
More than ever, institutions and hospital networks around the world are making plans to adopt digital workflows in pathology to increase efficiency, improve quality of care, and make use of promising AI algorithms across clinical care, research, and education. There is a seemingly endless choice of options when it comes to digital pathology workflow – the software platforms that manage the flow of images from scanner to pathology, interface with hospital infrastructure/LIS systems, operate seamlessly with various storage requirements, and provide the platform for AI algorithms so they can be used by pathologists and researchers.
How do you choose the right enterprise workflow vendor that will make your deployment a success? Is it only about the features and functionality of the solution? What about storage? How much does the vendor’s pathology domain knowledge and expertise factor in? How can the solution enable new capabilities and efficiencies, and even enhance return on investment?
Join us for our PathPresenter pre-conference workshop, where we’ve asked PathPresenter enterprise users to share their digital journey – how they defined their requirements, evaluated several options, and how they selected a workflow partner.
