From Digitalhealth News: Royal College of Pathologists Appointing Lead for Diagnostic Digital Pathology

| December 20, 2017

The Royal College of Pathologists is recruiting a clinical lead for diagnostic digital pathology, following its publication of a strategy suggesting the technology offers potential efficiency and quality benefits.

The document is the first time the College has formally published a strategy on diagnostic digital pathology, which involves scanning glass slides and viewing them via a computer rather than down a microscope.

The author of the strategy, which was published last month, told Digital Health News he felt RCPath was now “happy to encourage laboratories and groups of laboratories to develop digital services”.

Professor Tim Helliwell, who is consultant histopathologist at Liverpool Clinical Laboratories and the College’s vice-president for learning, added: “I think the College is hoping that, over the next five years or so, there is a gradual transition from a predominantly microscope-based pattern of service delivery to a computer-based digital mechanism of service delivery.”
