DIGITAL PATHOLOGY ASSOCIATION LAUNCHES WEBINAR SERIES TITLED “BARRIERS TO THE ADOPTION OF DIGITAL PATHOLOGY”
While the support and understanding of digital pathology is growing, there are still some cultural, financial, technical, and regulation obstacles that are limiting the adoption of digital pathology. All of these obstacles will be addressed in the Digital Pathology Association’s (DPA) upcoming webinar series entitled “Barriers to the Adoption of Digital Pathology”.
The topics addressed in this series of four webinars will act as a bridge to the workshops and discussions that will take place at the DPA’s annual conference, Pathology Visions. Pathology Visions will take place October 28-31, 2012 in Baltimore, Maryland. Aside from preparing for Pathology Visions, the DPA also wants to continue educating and generating awareness for the field of digital pathology. That’s why they’ve partnered with the Association for Pathology Informatics (API) and CAP Today to host the webinar series.
The first webinar in the series will take place this Wednesday, May 9, 2012 from 11 AM to 12 Noon EDT. The main focus of this webinar is “Cultural and Strategic Barriers to the Adoption of Digital Pathology”. President of the DPA, Dirk Soenksen of Aperio, will be a contributing speaker during the webinar, as well as Dr. Sylvia Asa and Dr. Keith Kaplan.
The remaining three webinars will take place at the same time, 11 AM to 12 Noon EST, on the following dates and focus on the following topics:
July 25 | Financial Barriers to the Adoption of Digital Pathology
September 19 | Technical Barriers to the Adoption of Digital Pathology
November 14 | Regulatory Barriers to the Adoption of Digital Pathology
