The first company to introduce an FDA-approved digital pathology slide scanner for primary diagnostic use in 2017, Philips is one of the founders of digital pathology. In the latest KLAS Research ‘U.S. Digital Pathology 2023’ Performance Insights report, Philips is assessed as having “one of the largest customer bases for primary diagnosis both within and outside the U.S.” for its digital pathology solutions. The company provides a proven and scalable clinical digital pathology solution that combines hardware, software and storage, which can be integrated with enterprise-wide IT infrastructure and AI capabilities .
Comprising a high throughput whole-slide scanner software and storage, Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution delivers diagnostic-quality slide images to pathologists and clinicians wherever they are, uniting care teams and curating data. With all images stored digitally, the solution also allows third-party integration of AI applications , and together with PACS it can be used to streamline workflow for improved efficiency, for example by rapidly identifying pathology images that need urgent attention.
"As an early adopter in digital pathology, I am inspired by how far OSUMC has come and how quickly we are advancing the practice of pathology,” said Anil Parwani, Professor of Pathology, Vice Chair and Director of Anatomical Pathology, Director of Pathology Informatics and Director of Digital Pathology at The Ohio State University. “At Ohio State University, we have an end-to-end digital pathology system, utilizing the Philips Digital Pathology platform for clinical care, research, and telepathology. We started this journey in 2017 and today our team averages more than 2,300 scans per day. We are now embarking on deploying AI-based diagnostic and decision support tools, working with applications from several AI vendors. The work we are doing will further advance our pathology practice as well as help others as we continue to pave the path to the future of pathology."
