Héphaïstos provides two products allowing to answer two needs that the Pathologists can feel in their work:
The first solution is a freemium. It allows laboratories and anatomopathology services to read their digital slides, and to write part of the report.
The second, which is currently being finalized, will be chargeable. It will offer decision support functions, and digital slide annotation.
When laboratories or pathology departments (within hospitals) purchase scanners, they must also purchase a viewer (which is often chargeable). This creates another problem: if the scanner is changed, they should plan to purchase another viewer compatible with the new scanner.
With our solution, we enable pathology laboratories and departments to read all types of scanned biopsies.
Now the pathologist can simply scan a slide and visualize it quickly, rather than using the time-consuming microscope. We are then in an approach of saving time.
