"Digital pathology is more than just high quality images. Addressing key issues of security, ease of use, integration with lab workflow, uptime and adherence to open standards are critical to a successful pathology PACS implementation."
PathPACS® is an integral component of your Apollo EPMM® system. PathPACS® is an open-system software solution that brings PACS features and functionality to the Pathology department. PathPACS® manages images from all laboratory imaging devices including gross images, micro images from cameras attached to microscopes, molecular imaging, electron microscopy, specimen X-rays, autopsy images, and whole slide scanners. Pathologists can also connect to imaging devices in real time across the laboratory enterprise through streaming video. PathPACS® has a well established interface with multiple laboratory and hospital systems utilizing standard HL7 and DICOM interface standards.
Apollo's PathPACS® enables pathology images to be included in the patient's electronic record. It streamlines the pathology imaging process, addresses patient safety for pathology imaging and optimizes pathology case workflow.
Apollo's PathPACS® provides the same benefits to pathology that Radiology PACS provides to Radiology but addresses the domain-specific needs of pathology. PathPACS® interfaces to hospital and laboratory information systems to exchange patient data, orders, and images. It captures images from all pathology imaging modalities, providing enhanced visualization and diagnostic capability while increasing pathologist and technician productivity.
Apollo's PathPACS® ensures referring physician satisfaction. Imaging has become a standard in pathology, just as in other specialties, and referring physicians expect images to be part of the patient record. The laboratory needs to improve productivity, patient safety, quality, and case throughput by automating with PACS systems as other departments have. This allows laboratories to improve patient satisfaction by shortening turn-around time on critical diagnoses. PathPACS® provides a strong ROI for today's modern laboratory.
