Digital Pathology Association has another Gold Sponsor: Sunquest Information Systems

Sunquest Information Systems, Inc., a market leader in laboratory and diagnostic information systems, today announced that it is a Founding Gold Sponsor of the Digital Pathology Association (DPA), a non-profit organization committed to the advancement of digital pathology applications in healthcare. The goals of the DPA include supporting digital pathology education initiatives, defining best practices, influencing standards and interfaces, organizing an annual conference that addresses diverse needs within the industry, and more.

Digital pathology plays a significant role in the movement to automate the practice of pathology. By creating a unifying organization like the DPA, founders hope to better integrate pathology information into the EHR and thereby improve safety and quality.

“We’re pleased to help launch a forum that will unite the pathology industry in a way that fosters access to more accurate and comprehensive patient information, ultimately contributing to the delivery of a transformed care process,” said Richard Atkin, president and CEO of Sunquest. “Our support for the DPA represents another example of Sunquest’s commitment to advancing state-of-the-art diagnostic IT.”

Kelly Feist, Sunquest Vice President for Marketing and Product Management, said, “The automation of the pathology workflow, including the incorporation of digital images, provides relevant clinical information that can be shared within an integrated EHR, the outcome of which is enhanced speed-to-diagnosis and improved patient care. The DPA will help coordinate efforts and activities toward achieving that important goal.”

In addition to Sunquest, the Gold Sponsors include Aperio, BioImagene, Omnyx, Olympus, and Premier Labs. A list that is expected to grow as others consider joining the DPA.

The DPA will kick off the 2009-2010 membership year at the Pathology Visions 2009 Digital Pathology Conference, September 13-15, in San Diego. The first face-to-face Board of Directors meeting will take place there, in addition to the inaugural Industry Council meeting.
