Philips, Oxford partner on pathology network

Royal Philips, the parent company of Philips Healthcare, and Oxford University Hospitals National Health Service (NHS) Foundation Trust in the U.K. plan to create a digital pathology network to help drive faster and more efficient diagnoses for patients.

Philips will install its IntelliSite pathology system at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, which will serve as a central laboratory service for partner sites at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Great Western Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in Swindon.

By creating a digital network, clinicians across the three regions and within the Thames Valley Cancer Network can collaborate remotely on patient cases, which will help reduce delays in slide transport times, encourage more efficient workflows across the sites, and enable quicker access to specialist pathology opinions, according to the firm.

Clinical cases will commence once network installation has completed, sometime in the third quarter of this year.
