UM’s Pathology, MLabs, In New Digital Network
ANN ARBOR — Irvine, Calif.-based PathCentral and MLabs, the department of pathology at the University of Michigan Health System, announced that MLabs will participate in the PathCentral Pathology Network, the specialty’s most comprehensive online information exchange and digital consultation forum.
“For MLabs, the PathCentral Pathology Network will provide our pathologists with an important new venue to consult and collaborate on cases anywhere in the world,” said Jeffrey Myers, M.D., Director, Anatomic Pathology and MLabs. “The Network will enable us to electronically connect with a broad base of users, and bring our consulting capabilities to new markets and new communities. We’re especially pleased at the truly open nature of the Network, and we look forward to the consults and the interchange that the Network promotes.”
The PathCentral Pathology Network enables physicians to upload case files using digital images for pathologists to review and render critical consulting diagnoses on both a global and a domestic real-time basis. In terms of scanning technology and imaging software, the Network is agnostic and designed to be non-exclusive – that is, open to all users regardless of location or consulting institution. The PathCentral Pathology Network seeks to connect the world’s pathologists, incorporating tools from social media, making it an ideal forum for pathologists to send and perform consults, create connections, post information, share cases, ask questions, and expand professional relationships.
