Full-service lab PathologyWatch now provides remote, academic-level dermatopathology services to laboratories in need of temporary or long-term support.

Digital dermatopathology service provider PathologyWatch is now offering top-tier dermatopathology services to laboratories in need of temporary or long-term locum tenens support. Utilizing the advantages of digital pathology, PathologyWatch provides instant remote access to a workforce of academic-level dermatopathologists.

Commonly, a laboratory in need of locum tenens assistance is responsible for providing travel arrangements, lodging and per diem to attract qualified talent. Using an integrated digital pathology system, PathologyWatch eliminates costly overhead by offering a network of expert dermatopathologists available 24/7 for consultation. As a result, laboratories find a seamless transition to help them to continue running at full capacity.

“Providing locum tenens support to companies experiencing overflow due to staffing or seasonal variables is the next logical step for PathologyWatch,” says CEO and co-founder Dan Lambert. “Our locums tenens support is ideal for pathology labs and dermatology clinics that have a limited number of in-house dermatopathologists. The on-demand services require no minimum or advanced notice. When dermatopathologists have an influx of samples, have a life event, or even want to take a vacation, they can simply turn on the services for as long as they need them.”

In addition to a significant reduction in travel costs, PathologyWatch provides labs with 24/7 digital access to all pathology slides without purchasing a scanner. This also includes improved access to subspecialists and second opinions. Meanwhile, extensive insurance coverage means PathologyWatch can accommodate the majority of laboratory customers nationwide.

“Using PathologyWatch for locums coverage has given me access to high-quality dermatopathologists when I needed the coverage with ease and flexibility,” said Emily Green, dermatopathology lab director at Golden State Dermatology. “I highly recommend their services.”
