Case StudyVivida Dermatology, Las Vegas
Partnering with PathologyWatch provided Vivida Las Vegas with an experience that allowed better communication within the organization.
At a Glance
The original home of Vivida Dermatology, the Las Vegas location is the leading dermatology center for general, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. Their surgical center focuses on skin cancer treatment via micrographic surgery performed by fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons, and their general dermatology clinic treats acne, cysts, moles, and more.
The multiclinic dermatology group had their own in-house lab and was sending out a percentage of cases they did not wish to read themselves. They were unhappy using labs that were required by certain insurances due to the quality of the reads and lack of EMR integration.
Staff at Vivida Las Vegas cited a better overall experience with PathologyWatch when compared to previous providers, saying the strong rapport of familiarity and trust has allowed for better communication. Whenever a new process has been tested, both organizations have been involved, resulting in an unparalleled quality of service.
