Our customers are technical imaging professionals that require an internal and external review of imaging with linked scientific and clinical results in a collaborative, multi-user environment" states Patricia Goede, President & CEO
The DWS promotes information exchange featuring current technologies to help advance the pathologists' role as "chief diagnostician". The DWS platform will speed the diagnostic process by consolidating imaging, clinical information, documentation and workflow into a unified, secure environment.
