Apollo Pathology PACS provides imaging and work flow benefits to laboratories

Falls Church 07 February 2007Apollo PACS Inc., formerly Apollo Telemedicine Inc., has introduced its new name and incorporation. At the heart of Apollo's solutions is PathPACS - Pathology Picture Archiving and Communications Solution. Apollo's PathPACS integrates pathology imaging into the electronic patient record and enables surgeons, dermatologists, and other specialists to connect to the laboratory to view results and images.


Apollo PathPACS increases referring physician satisfaction and improves pathology case work flow and throughput. The solution allows laboratory personnel to focus time and energy on growing their business and generating more revenue for both hospitals and private practices. The net result enables pathologists to offer better service at lower cost to the patient and hospital. Numerous hospitals and imaging centres have incorporated PACS into radiology with marked success; pathology departments are rapidly implementing Apollo PathPACS to achieve the same results.

"Now our name appropriately reflects the value that we deliver to our customers and the other health care professionals serviced by our customers", stated Mark Newburger, Apollo founder and CEO. "And while our name has changed - our vision and commitment to improving laboratory work flow remains the same. We believe the future of laboratory efficiency for pathologists stems from Apollo's Pathology Picture Archiving and Communications Solution."

Apollo's new name preserves the high brand awareness built over its 14-year history. It balances the past with the future, and signals to customers that Apollo has moved forward with the progressing improvements in health care practice.

Apollo's solution revolutionizes the laboratory work flow by consolidating pathology resources throughout the enterprise, streamlining the imaging process, and optimizing pathology case work flow for lab personnel. PathPACS addresses the unique archiving and storage needs of the pathologist's laboratory and addresses all issues of patient safety for imaging and secure access while simultaneously increasing the overall efficiency in pathology work flow.

Apollo has always adapted to the changing needs and climate of the health technology industry. And, while Apollo Telemedicine Inc officially becomes Apollo PACS Inc. today, it retains the widely recognized Apollo logo and continues its commitment to excellent support for all customers.

Apollo PACS Inc., a privately held company, incorporated in Delaware and headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, has developed patented imaging solutions for over a decade. Apollo provides end-to-end laboratory image process solutions to manage diagnostic case work flow.
