TeleSlide supports Telepathology

TeleSlide is an online platform allowing the development of expertise networks in Telepathology and Telemedicine as well as better interactions in education.

Increased interactivity of discussions in both teaching and ongoing training

TeleSlide MultiMedia is an effective tool designed for sharing digital slides for educational purposes and creating interactive practical cases. It provides access to a collaborative space in accordance with pre-determined conditions where members can interact: access, votes, annotations, questionnaires, etc.

The development of a network of expertise: telepathology and telemedicine

TeleSlide MultiMedia is a tool offering a fully secure connection for doctors from both hospitals and private laboratories in order to encourage the creation of networks of expertise.

  • Remote submission of opinion requests for difficult clinical cases
  • Remote first-time diagnosis through extemporaneous examinations
  • Creation of structured case review networks for establishing consensus

A web-conference module

Thanks to the Webex API module integrated with TeleSlide, you can directly and instantaneously share your diagnostic-quality images. Webex functions as a virtual multi-head microscope. Facilitate fully secure discussions with your colleagues with full traceability of all data.

  • Remote tutoring
  • Live expert interaction
  • Urgent examinations

The rise of telepathology networks

The development of information and communication technologies enables the progression of discussion within biopathology. The digitization of microscopic slides enabled by the revolution of slide scanners is helping to make digital imaging an essential part of research and training. It is also becoming a flagship tool in the development of telepathology.

The TeleSlide document sharing facility is a collaborative tool for both training and continuing medical education, providing essential support to learned societies and acting as an extension to networks of expertise.

Leading institutions such as the INCa (the French National Cancer Institute) are increasingly using review and dual review procedures, particularly when it comes to managing treatment of mesothelioma. If mesothelioma is confirmed during a pathological examination, a dual review must be carried out by a Mesopath network expert. The advent of digital pathology has enabled the implementation of effective and rapid networks of experts, meaning responses to urgent and critical diagnostic queries can be provided. Pathologists and biologists can therefore immediately begin discussing biopathology images and other documents related to a case. As such, they can quickly make a diagnosis with access to all the information they need.

Telepathology is also being used for opinion requests. The hyper-specialization of doctors and their unequal distribution across the region actually increases discussion among different members of the community.
