Description:

Successful implementation of a Digital Pathology Solution requires careful planning, communication, commitment and lots of hard work!  You must ask yourself all of the challenging questions up front; who, what, where, when and how do I make this change?  We will cover how to get started (basic project charter), request for proposal preparation (RFP), IT requirements/assessment,  regulatory considerations and privacy issues.  We will also touch on technical considerations (choice of equipment, size, ease of use, image management and storage).   We will offer some suggestions for pathologist validation and share our technologist competency matrix.  In this presentation, we will share our personal experiences; both positive and negative to assist you with providing as much information as possible should you decide to purchase a digital pathology system for your lab. If you would like embark on this incredible journey to better understand what is involved in implementing a digital pathology solution, please register for this webinar.
