Digital Pathology On Demand (DPoD) is a solution which improves the lab's ability to collaborate and function efficiently.
Digital Pathology On Demand (DPoD) is a solution which improves the lab’s ability to collaborate and function efficiently. This solution, developed in partnership with PathPresenter, converts physical glass pathology slides that are in storage into digital images, and data about the slide (known as metadata) is captured to link the slide image to the patient’s medical record.
Extensive customer research done by Iron Mountain’s Innovation Team reveals that Digital Pathology On Demand enables quicker slide retrieval, increased access for collaboration anywhere, and improves efficiency while maintaining end-to-end security for time-sensitive retrievals from storage.
We are actively seeking customers who have pathology assets stored at Iron Mountain, are currently performing more than 20 slide case retrievals weekly and who are interested in becoming early adopters of Iron Mountain’s Digital Pathology on Demand product.
Since the DPoD process converts physical glass pathology slides that are in storage into digital images, the solution is a combination of professional services, hardware, and software that improves speed and access to high-value slide images. The data about the slide (known as metadata) is captured to link the slide image to the patient’s medical record. This can be done as individual slide requests, requests for specific groups of slides, or in bulk to establish a library of pathology images. This offers a clear advantage to pathologists who work in hospitals, clinics, and clinical laboratories and also to clinical and academic researchers.
Digital pathology is a solution which improves collaboration with rapid and secure retrieval and sharing of slide images, while cost-effectively creating backup copies of your slides, managing long-term storage, and maintaining the chain of custody while safeguarding PHI. These digital slides are requisitioned by you and made available to you electronically through our secure Image Viewer system, saving you the time and hassle of physically managing the slides.
Ultimately, DPoD eliminates the wait for delivery of physical assets from archival storage, enabling management of shared images in a secure and scalable digital environment. You can also search, annotate, and share images to facilitate collaboration and archive them for future use.
