Toronto, Canada, May 19, 2023 — Diagnexia Canada Limited, owned by Deciphex Limited and internationally recognized as a leading provider of pathology services, is delighted to announce the launch of its cutting-edge accessioning facility in Toronto.
The new facility in Toronto underscores Diagnexia’s dedication to fostering innovation within digital pathology and increasing local engagement. It serves as a platform to further enhance Diagnexia’s ability to provide timely, precise, and high-quality pathology services not only across Canada but also at its other centers in the UK and US.
With pathology playing a crucial role in 95% of clinical pathways, the field is experiencing a critical surge in demand. Notwithstanding, the pathology landscape is being increasingly strained by the growing complexity of diagnoses, a decline in the number of pathologists, longer patient wait times, and a rapid rise in the need for expertise.
These challenges mandate the introduction of innovative solutions for optimum patient care. Digitizing pathology practices leads to more efficient workflows, enabling laboratories to manage larger caseloads while also slashing turnaround times. Consequently, this enhances patient care and outcomes.
Through Diagnexia's clinical platform, hospitals and laboratories are connected to an international network of subspeciality expert pathologists, ensuring the highest quality of patient care for healthcare services globally.
Many of the delays experienced by labs stem from traditional image analysis methods. By digitizing their pathology practices, labs can enhance their workflow, handle larger caseloads and significantly reduce turnaround times.
Diagnexia offers a comprehensive remote diagnostic & consult service that connects hospitals and laboratories to a national and an international network of subspeciality expert pathologists. This digital platform allows clinical cases to receive global expertise and guarantees a high quality of patient care for healthcare services.
"We are thrilled to extend our reach into Toronto, a city renowned for its commitment to healthcare innovation and growth. Our state-of-the-art facility here will enable us to better serve our clients across Canada and beyond while simultaneously contributing to local employment,"
said Prof. Runjan Chetty CMO of Diagnexia.
Diagnexia's Toronto Accessioning Facility, newly opened, serves as the vital digitisation hub for all biopsies uploaded to the Diagnexia Platform. Built with the latest technology and designed for efficiency, this facility represents a significant step forward in meeting the rising demand for digital pathology services.
With the launch of this facility, Diagnexia’s impressive clinical diagnostic turnaround times of less than three days – a stark contrast to the typical waiting times of 2-3 months – are now available to Canadian healthcare providers. This new facility and its state-of-the-art capabilities mark a significant advancement in reducing delays in disease diagnosis, status, case progression, and ultimately, in enhancing patient care.
