The Digital Pathology-Artificial Intelligence Workshop is in its 8th year (DP-AI 8.0) and will focus on whole slide imaging and artificial intelligence in both anatomic pathology and laboratory medicine in the non-academic hospital setting. We are seeing new innovative AI and machine learning technologies continuing to shape the DP space, with adoption now moving beyond the orbit of academic medical centers. These technologies continue to expand our ability to democratize patient access to pathologists geographically dispersed across integrated health systems. They make possible the ability for community health systems to build faster and more robust systems to deliver efficient and accurate diagnoses for local patient populations.

We are excited to announce that this year’s DP-AI workshop will be hosted by Mackenzie Health at the Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital in Vaughan, Canada, a state-of-the art “smart” hospital just outside of Toronto. Presentations will showcase how pathology departments across Canada’s provinces have developed provincial-wide integration of devices and software, successfully working within existing limitations rather than against them. Nearly a dozen lectures by Canadian and U.S. experts will share their adoption stories and unique innovative use cases that demonstrate how their teams have been able to move the pathology informatics needle forward in “real-time” to meet patient needs and expectations. Attendees are invited to a unique pre-meeting reception at Canada’s Wonderland, an amusement park, and have the opportunity to participate in a guided tour of Mackenzie Health’s laboratory spaces.

Themes Covered:

Regional and Provincial Network Formation
Enabling and Enaging with AI for the Pathologist on Sign-Out
