The Challenge

The practice was working with a pair of labs that didn’t offer the insurance plans that were most popular in their community. The dermatologist also wanted the option to review his slides but found working with glass caused him to fall behind. While the staff knew they wanted to switch to labs, they were nervous about the learning curves and headaches of making such a transition.

The Solution

By working with PathologyWatch, Northern Utah Dermatology gained access to a network of insurance partnerships. After a smooth transition, they also discovered the simplicity of a digital pathology workflow, with results and slides delivered directly to each patient’s EHR.
