Héphaïstos is a software design company that helps pathologists and cytologist technicians make faster, better informed diagnosis and treatment decisions by extracting cancer care data.
Héphaïstos aims to provide answers to one of the major problems in cancer screening: the scarcity of pathologists. In both developing and developed countries, the scarcity of pathologists creates work overload, and can affect the performance of pathologists.
For example, in France, we have 2.2 pathologists per 100,000 inhabitants. In sub-Saharan Africa, there is a pathologist for millions of people.
