Pathology's Evolution in Healthcare
From Behind the Scenes to Center Stage
According to Lord Carter of Coles, 70% of current disgnostic decisions are based on pathology (2008).
In the past, the majority of pathology departments have operated from behind the scenes. While pathology has always been critical to healthcare, advances in diagnostic testing, targeted drug options, and personalized medicine have made it even more integral. In fact, it’s estimated that pathology impacts as much as 70% of all healthcare decisions affecting diagnosis and treatment. Surgeons require intraoperative pathology consults, and patients expect timely expert opinions and results to help guide their treatment decisions. As the role of pathology increases in therapeutic decisions, so does the need for expert consults and concordance. The labor and time intensive processes of current pathology practices have proven themselves to be too unyielding. Pathologists everywhere are under pressure to accomplish more with fewer resources and are looking to new technologies to help them further unleash their skills and collaborate more easily. Healthcare organizations investing in the creation of patients’ electronic health records (EHR) are recognizing the advantage of capturing electronic data and images in all areas, including pathology.
The Evolution of ePathology
Aperio ePathology Solutions
Transforming the Practice of Pathology
Aperio recognized that analog processes were a major impediment to progress in pathology for both healthcare and life sciences organizations. This insight was the catalyst for us to be the first to develop the technology to transform microscopic glass slides into whole slide digital images, eSlides. Our end-to-end ePathology Solutions equip pathologists with the tools that enable them to take center stage and engage more efficiently with the entire healthcare team.
