Extreme Makeover: Creating Pathology Reports that Make a Difference

The centre of the pathology universe is the pathology report, but creating value from a Courier-font, paper-based document can be challenging. Pathologists now have the opportunity to integrate new technologies and design-minded thinking into what has previously been a static, unbending, and sometimes-misinterpreted showcase of their talent. Whole slide imaging, new static imagery, video, treatment algorithms, headlines, targeted summaries, and enhanced e-signatures can all provide opportunities to revive, enhance, and enrich pathology reports. This presentation will focus on creating value for patients by understanding disease processes, for clinicians by providing treatment road maps, and for pathologists by increasing marketability and practice enhancement. If you are in the business of generating diagnostic reports, this video of Dr. Glassy’s presentation from Pathology Horizons 2018 will help you make a difference.
