The rising pressure on pathologists
Integrated diagnostic capabilities are a cornerstone to a precise diagnosis and personalized care pathway selection for oncology patients – and only when data and specialties work together in perfect harmony can the ultimate promise of care be realized. That’s why bringing together multiple pieces of the healthcare continuum – like radiology, pathology, and genomics – is the key to a new paradigm of diagnostic precision.
The diligent work that pathologists do in labs every day has a significant impact on patient treatment and care – particularly in the world of oncology, where pathology plays a crucial role in diagnostics and cancer staging. In fact, it’s estimated that 70% of important medical decisions affecting patients’ lives involve laboratory or pathology tests.*
But pathology is rapidly changing – and becoming considerably more demanding. Pathology labs face pressure on multiple fronts: from resource shortages, to workflow inefficiencies, to a growing complexity of requests.
Limited in time and resources and expected to accomplish more at lower costs, pathology departments need to find new ways to adapt. As a result, pathology is beginning to transform to 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.
