At a Glance

Golden State Dermatology is a leading dermatology group in Northern California that specializes in dermatology, cosmetics, Mohs surgery for skin cancer, pathology, and plastic surgery. The thriving organization sought additional lab support to continue delivering providers with accurate and timely diagnoses. PathologyWatch provided academic-level dermatopathologists and an electronic workflow to help meet those demands.

The Challenge

A multiclinic dermatology group featured an in-house lab with a single staff dermatopathologist: Emily Green, MD. Managing the caseload from multiple practitioners was challenging. However, there wasn’t enough excess workload to justify hiring a second full-time dermatopathologist. As a result, the dermatopathologist was uneasy about taking vacation days, knowing she would return to an overflow of work.

The Solution

PathologyWatch provided on-demand support to assist with overflow reads while filling in completely when the dermatopathologist was away. Utilizing an EHR interface, PathologyWatch sent digital results directly to the patient EMR.
