University Hospital Of Jaén adopts Proscia's Concentriq Dx to better inform patient care

The digital pathology platform will improve collaboration across the hospital's multi-site network and lay the foundation for unlocking new diagnostic insights with AI.

Proscia, a leader in digital and computational pathology solutions, and University Hospital of Jaén have partnered to modernise the hospital's pathology practice. University Hospital of Jaén will leverage Proscia's Concentriq Dx to optimise routine diagnosis while laying the foundation for implementing artificial intelligence (AI), better informing patient care. This news comes on the heels of Proscia's formal expansion into Spain to accelerate its international growth.

Laboratories are rapidly adopting digital pathology, which shifts the 150-year-old standard of care from microscope to whole slide image, to overcome systemic challenges in the traditional laboratory model and capitalise on the growing potential to improve treatment decisions. These digital laboratories are not only driving quality and efficiency gains in routine workflows but also streamlining collaboration among distributed teams and unlocking new diagnostic insights with AI. As University Hospital of Jaén sits at the centre of a multi-site network in Andalusia, it recognised that it was in prime position to benefit from digital pathology and selected the scalable, highly-interoperable Concentriq Dx to enable its digital transformation.

CE-marked under IVDR, Concentriq Dx is a singular, secure digital pathology platform that powers routine workflows across the connected enterprise. Pathologists at University Hospital of Jaén will draw on its intuitive experience for viewing and accessing images to optimise their primary diagnostic workflows. Concentriq Dx also offers live, asynchronous, and remote access to whole slide images, enabling the hospital to streamline collaboration among sites and provide patients with faster access to expertise. The platform's best-of-breed interoperability will further help pathologists to make more confident diagnoses by unifying siloed data across the network.

"We are excited to have found a platform that will empower us to remain at the forefront of diagnostic medicine," said Rafael J. Luque Barona, MD PhD, Director of the Pathological Anatomy Laboratory at the University Hospital of Jaén. "As Concentriq Dx is flexible and open, it will allow us to leverage the latest innovations in digital and computational pathology throughout the Andalusian region to best serve our patients."

In addition to integrating with leading scanners, laboratory information systems, and image analysis applications, Concentriq Dx is AI-ready and designed to support laboratories in realising pathology's computational future. The platform will support the future integration of AI applications into clinical workflows, enabling pathologists to expand the breadth of diagnostic information available and view these insights alongside all of their other pathology data to better inform diagnosis.
