Limited in time and resources and expected to accomplish more at lower costs, pathology departments need to find new ways to adapt. Before the pandemic, diagnostic services were already burdened with high demand, and inefficient workflows. In the face of COVID-19, the need for greater efficiency and responsiveness has become even more urgent. As a result, pathology is beginning to transform into a digital discipline, bringing exciting new possibilities that can aid, streamline, and enhance diagnostic and clinical decision making – so labs can continue to meet the highest standards and help drive healthcare transformation forward.
Digital pathology aims to reduce pressure on pathology services by streamlining workflow and extending collaboration to increase diagnostic confidence. The Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution is highly scalable with proven technology that enhances productivity with high-resolution digital images, collaborative features, and case management tools. It is designed to support clinical practice, improve patient care, and reduce healthcare costs.
The solution will initially be rolled out through Healius Pathology's National Pathology Division with the ultimate goal of providing easy and immediate access to medical and veterinary pathology information across the business, allowing clinicians to make timely decisions about patient care.
