Digital Pathology
Implementation Strategies

Free Webinar With Q&A -- Hosted by Dark Daily

As reimbursement for digital pathology services starts to potentially become a reality, more hospital, clinical laboratory, and reference lab leaders will explore the technology.

Do you know where to start with implementing a digital pathology program for your hospital, health system, or independent pathology group to make the best use of your budget? This free 60-minute webinar with live Q&A will increase your knowledge and readiness.

Pathologists, hospital executives, and lab leaders need help cutting through frequently published news and commentary about digital pathology. They will find this new webinar, hosted by Dark Daily, practical and incisive for gaining a foothold on what to do for digital pathology should regulatory and reimbursement decisions rapidly evolve in favor of greater digital pathology adoption in the U.S.  


Pathology is in a time of rapid change. Use this free, 60-minute program as a practical update and an essential tool.

Experts will focus on the business-side foundation, implementation requirements of digital pathology service and workflow, and lessons learned through years of consultation, use case development, and implementation.


At Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, teams have scanned and archived over 6 million histology slides and are prospectively scanning all in-house H&E slides. During the webinar, Director of Digital Pathology Operations, Orly Ardon, PhD, MBA, will share some hard-learned lessons and the resources required for this large operation. 

Likewise, W. Dean Wallace, MD, at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC), has seen the danger of implementing an “incomplete digital pathology system.” Dr. Wallace specializes in pulmonary and renal pathology at USC, and his ongoing work in informatics and digital pathology includes collaborative efforts in the areas of radiology and pathology correlation, and telepathology. 

Drs. Ardon and Wallace will present their insights and experiences and answer questions during this free webinar event, which has been sponsored by Hamamatsu.
