- Paige, a global leader in end-to-end digital pathology solutions and clinical AI applications that assist in diagnosing cancer, announced it has teamed up with Nuance, a Microsoft company, to create the largest digital consultation network in pathology.
- This secure best-in-class platform will revolutionize collaboration among U.S. pathologists, making consultations faster and more efficient. The platform leverages the scale and capabilities of Nuance’s PowerShare image sharing network, together with Paige’s track record and expertise in digital pathology and their leading FDA approved viewer.
Creating the Largest Digital Consultation Network in Pathology
By merging Paige’s cutting-edge digital pathology tools, like FullFocus® and FullFolio™, with PowerShare, Nuance’s nationwide image sharing network, connecting over 14,000 sites for seamless medical image sharing, laboratories with any type of digital capability gain frictionless access to top-tier hospitals and healthcare systems for expert consultations, enhancing the diagnostic process.
This collaboration addresses common challenges in external consultations, like time constraints, glass slide damage risks, and high costs. It connects pathologists with peers and world-class experts, stimulates growth in reference centers’ consultation services, and streamlines healthcare operations, ultimately reducing time to diagnosis and costs whenever pathology cases are shared between institutions.
“Our collaboration with Nuance heralds a new dawn in pathology where pathology consultation becomes easier and cheaper and where patients can get access to the right experts at the right time. Together, Paige and Nuance seek to break down traditional barriers to cancer diagnosis and accelerate the wider adoption of digital pathology.” said Andy Moye, CEO of Paige.
