The Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in the US has started using Corista’s digital image management platform (DP3) to provide a clinical review of pathology cases.

Through the platform, pathologists are provided with a universal viewer, secure local and remote image viewing and navigation, image management, annotation and measurement diagnoses.

The DP3 sends notifications of new cases that need to be reviewed to physicians, it also has a centralised physicians’ dashboard, which integrating in-house and remote patient cases into a single view for medical staff. The technology can be used with existing hospital information systems and supports a range of devices, the company said.

The new system will allow MGH clinical experts to extend their reach to remote patients and their physicians for second opinions, the hospital said.

Corista CEO Elizabeth Wingard said: "In accessing specialists online and getting an immediate response, remote patients and hospitals can improve patient care with expertise that would have been delayed by days using couriers.

"Eliminating the delay improves the patients’ care by enabling providers to initiate the appropriate treatment plans immediately."

Massachusetts General Hospital is a teaching and biomedical research facility in Boston, Massachusetts.

The 907 bed medical centre offers sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic care in virtually every kind of medicine and surgery.
