Here is the thought: If hospitals will indeed move towards enterprise-wide information systems that may not be best suited for specific needs of pathology lab, how will users respond?
In other areas of Information technology the trend is clear: Users bring and pay for their own technology that makes them productive as long as this technology is easy to access (http://www.zdnet.com/blog/hinchcliffe/coit-how-an-accidental-future-is-becoming-reality/1368 ). I have seen this trend first-hand in enterprise IT domain.
This opens an opportunity for cloud-based Pathology Informatics within Hospital Labs domain and not just small independent commercial labs.
