Inspirata’s very first Digital Pathology customer will extend its contract with the healthcare technology company to deliver reliable and innovative Digital Pathology solutions that support the university’s goals to be a pioneer in digital transformation.
Columbus, OH / Tampa, FL, March 23, 2021 / GlobeNewswire – Inspirata announced today a multi-year extension of its relationship with The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James). Initiated in 2016, the partnership between the two organizations has resulted in many important milestones in digital pathology, including scanning over 1.75 million whole slide images (WSIs) and enabling the first primary diagnosis sign-out through digital in the United States.
“This is a testament to the dedication of the team and our ability to deliver world-leading solutions reliably for several years in a row. We look forward to many more years of great successes with our partners at OSU,” says Dr. Mark Lloyd, Inspirata’s Founder and Executive Vice President.
“We have accomplished so much in collaboration with Inspirata. Our pathologists now have access to digital images of the clinical cases which allow us to review them and share them easily with colleagues for consultations and conferences. Remote reads through digital pathology have also allowed us to provide rapid, remote analysis throughout the recent COVID-19 pandemic, helping to ensure continuity of cancer care for patients at our hospital and our partner community hospitals,” says Wendy Frankel, MD, Distinguished Professor and Ralph W. and Helen Kurtz Chair in Pathology at Ohio State University College of Medicine.
