"THE ECONOMIC REPORT" SHOW TO FEATURE PROPATH
August 11, 2009, Coral Springs, FL – The producers of The Economic Report are pleased to announce that ProPath will be featured in an upcoming episode on Emerging Developments in Pathology Services for the 21st Century as part of the show's Medical Minutes series.
While the early detection and diagnosis of life-threatening diseases such as cancer can help save lives and improve patient outcomes, timeliness and accuracy are also key factors. That’s where the services provided by a private laboratory and medical practice, such as Dallas, Texas-based ProPath, can make a significant difference.
“For over 40 years, our team of board certified pathologists has partnered with physicians to diagnose diseases and help patients find their unique roads to treatment and recovery,” says E.P. Jenevein, M.D., co-founder and senior partner of ProPath. “Unencumbered by outside ownership and interests, our pathologists have built a patient-centered organization focused on diagnostic and scientific excellence, superior service, and partnership with clinicians.”
A medical practice and laboratory specializing in anatomic pathology and specialty clinical testing, and supporting hospitals and medical centers for full service inpatient pathology services, ProPath’s team of more than 35 board certified pathologists has sub-specialty training and expertise in a number of areas. They include: Dermatopathology, Gastrointestinal Pathology, Hematopathology, cytopathology, breast pathology, Surgical Pathology, Podiatric Pathology, Urologic Pathology, Renal Pathology and Immunohistochemistry. Its practice and internationally recognized laboratories have some of the most competitive turnaround times for routine specimens.
Accredited by the College of American Pathologists and the Department of Health and Human Services in Accordance with the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988, ProPath follows comprehensive quality control and quality improvement programs.
Filmed on location in Dallas, the five-minute segment takes viewers on a tour of the laboratory and features the 14 checkpoints of the proprietary ID system that ProPath has developed to maximize patient safety from specimen pick up to results reporting. The segment will provide information on why the quality of the pathology lab, as well as the expertise of the pathologists, is important in the diagnosis of cancer. The segment includes interviews with ProPath representatives and others.
