The Roche Digital Pathology mission is to double patient access to medical care through digitization and to deliver innovative, high quality AI applications for clinical diagnostic pathology that impact patient lives.
Artificial intelligence (AI) applications hold promise to improve patient outcomes through use in clinical diagnostic procedures performed by pathologists. With the increasing shortage of pathologists worldwide1, coupled with the increase in incidence of cancer and growing number of immunotherapies, there is a need to improve diagnostic efficiency and reduce complexity for pathologists. AI-based image analysis algorithms in pathology remove time-consuming tasks to support diagnostic efficiency and ensure an easier way of scoring through digital-assist solutions. AI applications in pathology allow pathologists to focus on tasks that matter most for optimal patient care.
What we know is treatment and diagnosis for cancer can actually vary... What we're doing is investing in artificial intelligence... as quality of diagnosis goes up, treatment and outcome for patients is improved.
