FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—May 14, 2012—ANN ARBOR, MI—Logic Solutions, the United States & Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP), and the Inovo Institute are excited to announce the development of MyPath: an innovative webtool and iPad app that connects the best content in pathology with the best experts in pathology.
MyPath provides the pathology community with quick access to vital medical knowledge such as journal articles, textbook excerpts, slide images, lectures, USCAP meeting handouts, and other pathology-related content. With a single search, pathologists can swiftly mine through this compendium to explore the most salient, timely research available.
“MyPath is a solution to the problem of ‘Too Much Information,’” said Jeff Myers, who chairs the USCAP Innovative Educational Products Committee. “It’s a way to help you do your job better, whether it’s reading slides, training residents, or collaborating with peers.”
MyPath is much more than a data portal: users may also save content, enabling them to build and refer to a customized collection of research. Additionally, MyPath’s social functions offer an unprecedented ability for pathologists to share and curate content.
Comment sharing on MyPath content supports collaboration among members of the community, facilitating continuing education and engagement with research. Future functionality may offer the opportunity to view saved lists from other users, get updates on their changes, and more.
“We’re very proud of our partnership with USCAP and Inovo both in terms of technology and purpose,” said Logic’s Chief Technology Officer Matt Sarkesian. “The peer-curating functions were very exciting to watch come to fruition, and especially for a project that can ultimately help improve quality of care.”
Larry Schmitt, President of the Inovo Institute, said, “The Inovo Institute was pleased to work closely with the USCAP to identify and develop this innovative new offering for the pathology community. MyPath’s early success affirms the Academy leaders’ decision to make innovation a key component of their strategy, as well as the value of partnering to achieve their goals.”
MyPath is intended to be used by pathologists around the world. However, during the current introductory period, it is only available to USCAP members and non-members who attended the 2012 USCAP Annual Meeting in Vancouver.
MyPath features a feedback component on every page that allows users to offer input on future enhancements.
