Dr. Sylvia Asa (University Health Network, Toronto), Mr. Dirk Soenksen (Aperio, Vista, CA) and myself will address cultural and strategic barriers to adoption of digital pathology. Each one of these webinar series sessions will be moderated by Robert McGonnagle, publisher of CAP Today.
Having been a part of the discussion and getting a quick look and the other speakers' slide decks in advance of our session in a couple of weeks, think this is going to be a good series on what the challenges and barriers are in digital pathology adoption in the clinical space and some insights as to how to overcome them.

BARRIERS TO ADOPTION OF DIGITAL PATHOLOGY
The Digital Pathology Association (DPA) in partnership with the Association of Pathology Informatics and CAP Today will host a series of four, one-hour webinars in 2012 focusing on the barriers to adoption of digital pathology. The topics to be addressed during the webinars include: a cultural and strategic perspective, regulatory issues, financial aspects of deployment, and technical considerations.
Each session will be moderated by Robert McGonnagle, publisher of CAP Today. Each of the four webinar sessions will include several experts in the field who will deliver short & focused presentations, and then will interact with McGonnagle and attendees about the major points presented.
These webinars will serve as a bridge between the recent, comprehensive article about regulatory aspects of digital pathology that appeared in CAP Today (see:Regulators Scanning the Digital Scanners) and the two most important, national conferences focusing on digital pathology, Pathology Visions 2012, the annual conference of the DPA, to be held October 28-31, 2012 and Pathology Informatics 2012 to be held October 9 – 12, 2012 in Chicago.
