"Demand for pathology consultants in China is growing at a rate that simply cannot be accommodated locally," said Shiang Huang, M.D., founder and chief executive officer of Kindstar. "Thanks to PathCentral's new online professional network, which takes full advantage of digital scanning technology, Kindstar clients in China will be able to have their patient's cases reviewed by U.S. pathologists without having the slides or the patients leave the country. This is a tremendous milestone for the medical community in China and for our ability to serve patients throughout the country. We see the Network as a natural complement to our existing relationship with PathCentral around its APLIS technology."
"We're extremely excited about our continued involvement with Kindstar, a relationship that began two years ago," said Jaye Connolly, Chief Executive Officer, PathCentral. "The rollout of the network with Kindstar represents the next phase of our technology evolution. It not only enables us to electronically connect a broad base of hospitals with highly qualified pathology consultants, but it brings U.S. diagnostic expertise and technology to all corners of the globe. Best of all, we've created a truly open network that will uniquely encourage participation and feedback from everyone who uses it."
