SUNQUEST ATTENDS USCAP TO SHOWCASE COPATH PLUS 5.0 ANATOMIC PATHOLOGY SOLUTION

Sunquest Information Systems®, a leading provider of healthcare information technology, announced that it will be attending the USCAP (United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology) annual meeting, which will be held February 26-March 4, 2011 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, in San Antonio, TX. Sunquest will be located in booth #283, where it will showcase its industry-leading anatomic pathology solution, Sunquest CoPathPlus™ 5.0.

Sunquest CoPath Plus 5.0 introduces a new and innovative specimen management and tracking solution designed specifically to automate the complexities associated with managing specimens and their many derivative assets.  This will enable more efficient and accurate specimen analysis, enhanced speed to diagnosis, and, ultimately, improved patient outcomes.

Sunquest is also introducing advanced integration with digital imaging solutions for the practice of anatomic pathology. Designed to function as a virtual “pathologist’s cockpit” for improved productivity and performance, Sunquest CoPath Plus delivers to pathologists a comprehensive view of patient information.

Sunquest® is a Founding Gold Sponsor of the Digital Pathology Association (DPA), a non-profit organization committed to creating standards for the adoption and use of digital imaging in the practice of pathology. Working closely with strategic partners, Sunquest has developed and delivered major advances in anatomic pathology workflow, specimen tracking, and usability. 

“Anatomic Pathology laboratories must ensure process quality and patient safety even as test volumes are rapidly increasing,” said Richard Atkin, Sunquest President and CEO. “Sunquest CoPathPlus 5.0 provides intuitive, efficient, and automated workflows to laboratories while delivering improvements in patient safety and enabling growth opportunities for practice outreach. It is an important next step toward fully automating processes within the anatomic pathology lab workflow.” 

Sunquest has demonstrated an ongoing commitment and leadership in the anatomic pathology market. Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston, MA has begun implementing Sunquest CoPathPlus™, and Bon Secours Health System, in Marriottsville, MD, is implementing Sunquest CoPathPlus at its three facilities in the Hampton Roads, VA region, which completes the adoption of the anatomic pathology solution throughout the Bon Secours network.
