“Pathologists experience several challenges with regard to transportation of slides between facilities and time involved in preparing reports; all of these processes are tedious, manual, and time-consuming,” states Clifford.
Digital pathology accelerates the diagnosis and treatment of an illness by improving workflow efficiencies and reducing the time taken for research, validation, secondary consults, and tumor board preparations
However, Gestalt’s solution offers a competitive advantage to pathologists by allowing them to share cases and results anywhere and at any time, resulting in faster diagnosis, and improved quality. Additionally, the PathFlow solution provides a secure platform to acquire pathology images and clinical data, route the case to the appropriate pathologist, and receive secondary consults in return. “We have a unique pathologist cockpit that allows pathologists to access all of the relevant case information including digital images, which are essential to complete their unique, streamlined workflow without the necessity of being mired in the LIS,” adds Clifford. Gestalt’s solution also eliminates expensive courier costs, reduces turnaround time, and improves revenue streams.
A distinct factor that makes Gestalt standout among peers is that the company assigns a separate team to each customer from the time they purchase the solution until post-live operational use to ensure a hands-on approach and successful implementation and training for best long-term ROI. The PathFlow solution also offers a pathologist-centric workflow aggregator that enables case review, case management, and worklists for multiple facilities while providing consistent clinical data about the patient.
Clifford credits Gestalt’s ongoing success to her team, “Everyone from our knowledgeable and experienced leadership team to each individual contributor, all of Gestalt’s employees are passionate, dedicated, and driven to deliver the best, full-featured solution.” Moving ahead, the company is planning on expanding its solution to provide additional features and functionalities, such as artificial intelligence, that would contribute to both the growth of the company as well as meet customers’ needs.
