Two new modules offer advancements for project- and course-based uses of DP3

Concord, MA (March 17, 2022) – As an innovator in digital pathology, Corista has designed its DP3 platform to solve today’s complex, image-driven healthcare challenges. Corista recently released two new modules that provide greater functionality for research and education professionals.

Corista’s new Research and Education Modules are scalable and customizable to meet the specific needs of each organization, and both can be utilized either as standalone applications or in tandem with other modules.

“Education and research are fundamental to physicians and scientists across markets, from medical centers to life sciences, and are particularly acute given the digitization of the industry”, said Corista Founder and CEO, Elizabeth Wingard. “Within each of these new modules DP3 provides broad capabilities and a rich collaborative environment to support the practice areas.”

DP3 Research Module

For research and project-based workflows, DP3’s new Research Module enables cases and images to be assigned across multiple projects. Each project can be associated with customizable reporting templates to ensure consistency of data collection and review. Case, patient, and specimen data can also be customized with dynamic data fields specific to each project. The Research Module also provides for role-based capabilities per project.

DP3 Education Module

DP3’s new Education Module provides access to cases and images for courses, lesson plans and slide sets for students of pathology. Instructors can include questions within the slide sets for testing, direct learning and for discussion. Students can be enrolled to complete a lesson during a specified timeframe or on their own schedule. The role definitions are assigned on a per-course basis, meaning a user can participate as an instructor in one course and a student in another.

These two new applications join DP3’s core Clinical Module which offers a robust set of image management capabilities. The new Research and Education modules are new complements to the current modules for:

  • Analytics: Take advantage of integrations with leading quantitative image analytics to view results without ever leaving the platform.
  • Conference: Facilitate the multi-disciplinary review of cases by organization, facility, or subspeciality.
  • Reports: Gain insights into QA case review activity as well as a summary of consult reports.
