Tailored Digital Pathology Solution for Hospitals, NHS & Private Institutions

Digital technologies have the capability to push Pathology into becoming more efficient and more scalable. There is scope to transform the job of pathologists into a more creative and data-driven profession, facilitating workflow improvement and permitting patients to receive diagnoses faster and more accurately.

Whilst there is reluctance from the pathology sector to embrace technological advances, it’s been further exacerbated by digital providers not being ready with accessible solutions; full service provision is not easily available, costs are seen as prohibitive, and unnecessary complexity has been built into the marketing model, deterring the move from the microscope to the digital screen.

PathHub LIMS is a customized digital LIMS solution for larger healthcare institutions, enabling the establishment to embrace digital pathology via a simple streamlined approach, unrestricted by huge capital outlays or long on-board timelines. Whilst we integrate with 99% of global slide scanner manufacturers, PathHub LIMS can be used with glass slides if your organization is not ready to install scanners. As a bi-note, we do offer a very cost effective slide digitization service at our licensed laboratories.

Our core model is currently in use in a number of NHS and private institutions, however as each institution’s needs are different the software is customized for you to ensure a 100% fit for purpose. Our Matrix Widget Library has a whole array of functionality and modules to customize and implement tailored solutions, faster, more cost effectively and with less stress and disruption to you. We understand busy hospital's cannot afford downtime with back office infrastructure development, so we promise a fast onboarding project for your organization. 

Responsive Consultation & Solution Process 

Our New Business Team incorporates an Account Executive, Project Lead, Workflow Management Analyst, in-company Pathologist and IT Analyst. They work with your team to analyze your requirements and customize the assembly, integration and go-live of your bespoke solution.

PathHub Matrix Widgets

We build your solution from PathHub Matrix Widgets, our LIMS building Blocks. Modules are selected from a menu giving you options from simple report viewing access to full deployment, with patient records, laboratory processing, digital pathology & diagnostic reporting. PathHub Widgets are already built, tried & tested, no risky time consuming or expensive new code. Over a million cases have been processed & reported using the technology.

 


Our design & installation team's main role will be to map your requirements, integrate to any existing systems in your infrastructure which you wish to retain, and train your nominated personnel. We provide a risk free solution and give you peace of mind. Your dedicated project lead will keep you informed of progress against target timeline. In general we can onboard an average sized hospital fully integrated LIMS solution within 3 to 4 months of contract signing.
