More accurate, quicker diagnoses possible via new Elsevier product

Path Consult is designed to be used in the workplace as a differential diagnosis tool to provide clinical decision support covering every subspecialty area of general pathology. For the first time, pathologists will be able to conduct a side-by-side comparison of up to three diagnoses at a time, significantly reducing the amount of time spent researching the same information offline.

"Path Consult demonstrates Elsevier's commitment to customers by delivering a truly innovative tool for the end user. Our agile development process is designed to maximize this value in minimum time," says Jonathan Clark, Executive Vice President, Technology at Elsevier.

Using its established industry leading references from Mosby, Saunders, and Churchill Livingstone, Elsevier developed Path Consult to include more than 10,000 images for more than 500 conditions at launch, and more than 20,000 images for 1200 diagnoses by Fall of 2006.

Path Consult was developed using an agile development process that closely engaged development partners so Elsevier could quickly bring the product to market with the features pathologists really want. The agile process involves a series of product iterations which are adapted based on feedback.

Elsevier worked with leading pathologists to ensure the quality, accuracy, and usability of the online resource. "A plethora of expertly-obtained digital images and succinct textual content combined with the ability to compare similar histopathologic entities at the touch of a button will make the job of any pathologist easier," says John D. Cochran, MD, a private practice pathologist in Atlanta, Georgia who worked with Elsevier on the development of the product.
