Newfoundland and Labrador launch telepathology network

RealTime Medical will be part of the GE Healthcare telepathology network launch in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The following is an excerpt from the article “Newfoundland launches provincial telepathology network,” published in Canadian Healthcare Technology:

To further enhance the accuracy and speed of diagnosis for pathology, GE Healthcare and Omnyx have partnered with RealTime Medical, also of Mississauga, Ont. RealTime Medical has developed workflow software that allows pathologists to collaborate; it automatically alerts colleagues to new cases to review, tracks review progress and enables pathologists to report results through the network.

“It enables collaboration between specialists, allowing them to improve the quality of the diagnosis. It extends the reach of their skill sets,” said Ian Maynard, CEO of RealTime Medical.

And when slide images are sent to pathologists for interpretation, if one is busy, the case is automatically rolled over to another pathologist. That ensures there is never a delay in having a case read.
