This episode's guest:

John Wirthlin - Chief Executive Officer - Lumea

This episode of Digital Pathology Today™ our guest is John Wirthlin, CEO, Lumea

Too many systems or components in a pathology workflow adds complexity and cost. How can we create an elegant end to end solution to enhance workflows, while decreasing both complexity and costs?

We discuss the end-to-end solution in digital pathology. One of the promises of digital pathology is making the pathologist’s workflow more streamlined and more efficient. But can we bring the Laboratory Information System (LIS) into the clinic and improve the workflow flow for our clinician colleagues as well. How can we improve the tissue handling or preanalytic phase of testing? It's often easy to forget who the customer is. By utilizing enhanced workflows, can we improve satisfaction for the clinician, who is ultimately treating the patient?
