Salt Lake City-based PathologyWatch announced today a new arrangement with Cedars-Sinai Medical Care Foundation, a nonprofit healthcare organization based in Los Angeles. The arrangement enhances PathologyWatch’s efforts to bring expert dermatopathology services to an expanded group of patients in Southern California.

Many people requiring outpatient dermatologic services outside of California’s major metropolitan areas (Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco) are sent to hospitals, where the ability to offer cost-efficient diagnoses is restricted. PathologyWatch can help these dermatology clinics by offering a network of academic-level dermatopathologists and an integrated digital pathology system that reports directly to each patient’s electronic medical record.

PathologyWatch was founded to digitally transform the laboratory system. By using the ValueWatch services, practices can reduce financial risk, improve clinic workflows, and enhance patient outcomes. This is enabled by combining the highest quality reads by top-tier dermatopathologists together with digital tools that allow providers to view pathology slides 24/7 and access reports directly within their clinic electronic medical record.

“We’re very excited to add Cedars-Sinai Medical Care Foundation to our participating dermatopathologists,” said Greg Osmond, co-founder and chief medical officer of PathologyWatch. “Cedars-Sinai is one of the premier healthcare systems in the United States with some of the best pathologists in the industry. Our relationship reflects our joint commitment to provide the highest quality care together with the latest technological advances in digital pathology.”
