Hadassah Medical Center and Assuta Medical Center, two leading healthcare providers in Israel, are digitizing their pathology departments with a solution from Sectra, Linköping, Sweden. “It was important for us to choose a solution that has a track record of high system availability and has been proven to work for full-scale primary diagnostics handling large volumes and incorporating AI innovations,” says Liat Aple-Sarid, MD, chief medical manager of the pathology lab at Assuta Medical Center. “Sectra’s solution will optimize our workflows through state-of-the-art clinical tools and AI innovations. It will support us in delivering the best possible cancer care and expand the services we provide to clinicians and patients,” says Asaf Gertler, PhD, at Hadassah Medical Center. With digital images of tissue samples instead of physical glass slides, pathologists are able to instantly access and share current and historical images and information between departments and hospitals. The digital solution provides pathologists with assistance at critical decision points, such as grading or performing more precise measurements. It also enables image analysis, which in turn reduces variation and improves the precision of tasks such as cell counting. Digital access also facilitates second opinions, external reading resources, and specialist consultations. At both healthcare providers, the solution will be integrated with the laboratory information system (LIS). This will provide pathologists with a complete overview of the patient history in one application and enable workflow orchestration to drive the reporting workflow according to sub-specialties, rules, and priorities. The solution’s vendor-neutral approach also gave the two healthcare providers the freedom to select the scanner vendor of their choice. For more information, visit Sectra.
