Making the most of the Digital Pathology System: Beyond a simple connection between LIS and IMS

The amount of information that pathologists handle on a daily basis is increasing with the complexity of diagnostic procedures, and there is a need to reduce the workload per person.

One of the approaches to improve efficiency is to digitize information. The aim of digitization in pathology is not to replace pathologists with machines, but to support pathologists in complicated and time-consuming tasks.

Over the past two years, we have implemented a digital pathology system at our institute and integrated it with laboratory and hospital systems.

Through digitization, the data can be processed, analyzed and shared over a network, replacing individual tasks with data processing, thus automating them, and reducing time.

As a result, pathologists will concentrate on more essential tasks and improve their overall workflow. In this presentation, we discuss how we have utilized digital data and integrated databases, and some of the practical issues involved.
