Key Steps to a Successful Digital Pathology System Implementation

A successful digital pathology system implementation depends upon careful planning and commitment. Most pathologists are hesitant to move from the gold standard of glass slides to a digital image-based platform. Today, however, whole-slide scanners can provide high quality images that allow pathologists increased flexibility for case management and collaboration with other pathologists. As the technology continues to grow, digital pathology will soon become the new gold standard. 

This article is the first in a two-part series to aide in the implementation of a digital pathology system. Using a systematic approach and standard project management principles, you can engage your team and keep your project on track. By working through the following steps, you will increase your chances of a successful system implementation within a reasonable timeframe defined by you and your project team.
