IT leaders use technology for better healthcare. Because technology touches every patient.
As an IT leader, you are forced to balance innovative new tools with practical enterprise-wide adoption and integration.
Given the trajectory of fields like radiology and urology, the transition from traditional pathology to digital pathology appears imminent. At the same time, however, going digital could present significant challenges for you as an IT manager if the new program is not designed to integrate with existing systems in a manner that is intuitive and efficient.
A well-designed digital pathology platform will feature:
- Consulting, training and support to accelerate the rollout and integration process.
- Robust case management that can interface with existing patient management systems.
- High resolution images that use advanced compression to reduce file sizes without sacrificing quality.
- User-friendly sharing and collaborative tools that leverage the versatility of HTML5 viewing and cloud access.
- Connectivity with enterprise imaging to support integration of the patient record and any relevant collaboration across disciplines.
- Image life-cycle management that simplifies storage and bandwidth needs.
You play a pivotal role in care delivery even if much of your work occurs behind the scenes. By adopting a digital pathology platform that takes IT concerns to heart, healthcare organizations can better unify the efforts of every team and employee to move toward a singular goal: enhanced, patient-centered care.
