API Positions and Papers

The Association for Pathology Informatics is a largely volunteer-based organization consisting of professionals engaged in pathology informatics. In addition to conducting important research, carrying out essential clinical practices, and leading crucial initiatives, many of our members are involved in assessing matters that have direct bearing on the adaptation and implementation of technologies and workflows seeking to improve health standards and care for the patient community. Often times, the positions that are taken reflect the standards and goals of API and are thus reflected in joint letters or papers on behalf of the Society and its members.  Below, you can find its most recent positions on salient issues:
