Mount Sinai Health System of New York has announced a partnership with LabCorp (LH) to offer an integrated healthcare delivery system establishing a Digital and Artificial-Intelligence (AI)-Enabled Pathology Center of Excellence.
LabCorp, which has implemented the Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution in four of its laboratories, will plan on introducing the platform to new laboratories and use its experience and expertise to lead the integration of digital pathology into clinical practice across Mount Sinai hospitals.
First digital pathology will be used for interpretations of genitourinary malignancies, mainly prostate tumors, as well as cancers of the head and neck. In follow-up phases, the technology will be employed by Mount Sinai pathologists to use the digital pathology solution to provide consultations for cases interpreted by LabCorp’s Dianon Pathology specialty laboratory. This will offer physicians and patients from across the U.S. access to the leading expertise of Mount Sinai specialists.
