Faster than Glass: Implications and Outcomes of Fully Digital PathologyISLH 2023 SIemens Healthineers Sponsored Lunch Symposium

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to maintain a high-quality pathology service while keeping staff safe accelerated The Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center’s transition to a fully digital workflow.  Now, after achieving significant improvements in efficiency and flexibility, there is no going back to an analog way of working. Watch this webinar and go behind the scenes to learn about the challenges associated with an all-digital approach, the outcomes achieved, and what the future holds in terms of artificial intelligence-based applications.

  • Identify the components for a successful transition into a digital workflow.
  • Summarize the steps and skills needed to sign out a case using different combinations of integration between laboratory information systems (LIS) and image management systems (IMS).
  • Compare the level of efficacy, efficiency, and organization between digital and analog workflow.
  • Discuss how a digital workflow is a pre-requisite to utilize artificial intelligence tools for different tasks such as biomarker quantification, lymph node metastasis detection, and cancerous lesion screening, etc.
