Pathologists using digital scanning and digital pathology systems can now utilize latest-generation Web 2.0 functionality to enhance productivity and increase compensation. That’s the message in a newly-published White Paper, “Pathology Innovators Use Web 2.0 to Boost Productivity and Create Clinical Value”.

Already, the first digital pathology products that incorporate Web 2.0 functions are available and in use at a number of innovative pathology laboratories. The distinction between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 is important. Web 1.0 was a passive interface between web pages and the user. Web 2.0 is a responsive, interactive interface between the web page and the user. Thus, when Web 2.0 functions are incorporated into digital pathology systems and pathology workflow, significant productivity and quality gains result. The White Paper “Pathology Innovators Use Web 2.0 to Boost Productivity and Create Clinical Value” is tailored to the needs of any pathologist or lab professional looking to fully modernize their laboratory. Published by The Dark Report and Dark Daily, it is available free to laboratory professionals as a PDF download here.

This is the first educational resource on the integration of digital images and digital pathology systems with Web 2.0 functions. The White Paper explains all the ins and outs of “Pathology 2.0” functions in a simple, easy-to-understand fashion. The paper’s author, Lou Ramondetta, has almost 20 years of experience in the medical industry. He is currently the Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Aurora Interactive. This White Paper, “Pathology Innovators use Web 2.0 to Boost Productivity and Create Clinical Value” is available for free download as a PDF file. It is part of the Dark Daily Resource Center which has a growing library of White Papers and other information resources tailored specifically for the needs of laboratory administrators, lab managers, pathologists, and lab industry consultants.
