Why does Philips participate?
Philips is committed to actively participating in driving standardization in pathology and that is why we participate consistently in these events. We believe that standardized digital pathology will enhance patient care by making pathology data accessible to the clinical team across the entire healthcare enterprise. As an example, prostate cancer care teams carefully assess information from multiple disciplines such as pathology, radiology, surgery, and oncology. If all disciplines could employ standards and enterprise-wide solutions would be available to organize this data in a meaningful way, the oncology care team would be much more effective in treatment decision making due to seamless access to all the required patient information.
