Upscaling of digital pathology capabilities across the PathLAKE Plus consortium

HealthTrust Europe

PathLAKE Plus, a consortium of 19 NHS Trusts, formed to deliver digital pathology, AI capabilities and laboratory interoperability as part of the OLS Digital Pathology and imaging AI Scale Up Programme.

The digitisation of histopathology slides into whole slide images improves efficiency by reducing waiting time for reports. It creates a new digital workflow for cellular pathology diagnostics, allowing use of clinical diagnostic AI within Pathology Departments across the consortium improving efficiency and outcomes to a patient population of 17.9million. HealthTrust Europe established an innovative compliant Framework Agreement to procure Digital Pathology Solutions, including all hardware and associated software.
