PathCentral Appoints Noted Pathologist Greg Henderson to Serve as Chief Medical Advisor of New Digital Pathology Network

IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

PathCentral (, a technology-enabled company dedicated to the success of the pathology community, today announced that Gregory Henderson, M.D., Ph.D., will serve as Chief Medical Advisor for the company's comprehensive new online information exchange and digital consultation forum, the PathCentral Pathology Network (

Launching March 4, the PathCentral Pathology Network represents the industry's first open, cloud-based platform, harnessing all the technologies of digital imaging, social media, and laboratory information system functionality under one virtual roof. The PathCentral Pathology Network will enable physicians to upload case files using digital images for pathologists to review and render critical consulting diagnoses on both a global and a domestic real-time basis. In terms of scanning technology and imaging software, the Network is agnostic and designed to be non-exclusive in its use.

Henderson, who has dedicated much of his recent professional career to advancing digital pathology consultation on a global scale, has become a recognized leader in applying digital pathology technology to serve populations in developing countries. Now actively engaged in awarenes-building from within the pathology community, Henderson is an enthusiastic advocate for digital consultation, principally for physicians and hospitals in areas that currently lack access to world-class digital scanning technology and pathology expertise.

In his role as Chief Medical Advisor, Henderson will help guide the development of pathology consultant relationships, create a training and monitoring program to support the efficacy of digital pathology over glass slide analysis, inspire IT development from the pathology user vantage point, and serve as a thought leader for the promise of digital pathology throughout the medical community.

"As a champion for the humanitarian potential offered by remote clinical diagnostics, Dr. Henderson will help bring to fruition our vision of creating a comprehensive online information exchange that hospitals, doctors and pathologists can access from every corner of the globe," said Jaye Connolly, CEO of PathCentral. "Our company has long pioneered cloud-hosted solutions for the pathology community, through our Anatomic Pathology Laboratory Information Systems (APLIS) technology - and with the creation of the Network, we are able to merge that state-of-the-art technology with the power of the social network."

"The time is right for technology, operating via the cloud, to foster a conversation within the global pathology community," Henderson said. "The PathCentral Pathology Network will build on that conversation and make the interchange transactional. We're integrating technologies to assist pathologists in their daily operation and help them connect on an entirely new level with their pathologist colleagues worldwide. I'm absolutely delighted to be part of this powerful next wave in medical diagnostics."

Henderson is particularly excited about the impact of this technology on developing countries without access to world-class diagnostic capabilities. "This is visionary medicine at its best," he said. "The beauty of the PathCentral network is that doctors on the ground in remote parts of the world will be able to link up with a quality pathologist partner, look at and analyze their patients' medical situations from different dimensions, and then effectively direct patient care in the way that it easily can and should be managed using these tools. What we are looking at is a true sea change in global diagnostics that will transform patient care on a massive scale."
