The Inform Diagnostics Difference
Inform Diagnostics practices subspecialty anatomic pathology differently.
We’ve systematically set ourselves apart from other labs through
our unparalleled quality and experience. And the results are evident:

our proven quality.
The combination of Inform Diagnostics expert pathologists and our quality
process translates to the ultimate care for specimens, clients, and patients.
Inform Diagnostics' quality pathology is based on six factors which
impact a pathologist's interpretation:
Inform Diagnostics processes a high volume of specimens each year. As a
result, our subspecialized pathologists have a better calibration of atypia
and dysplasia. Each maintains in-depth learning and expertise of assigned
areas of interest, and is responsible for educating their Inform Diagnostics
colleagues. Every patient benefits from a subspecialty expert.
The average tenure for our pathologists is 10 years with Inform Diagnostics.Their
experience benefits clients and patients, even through market and corporate change.
Inform Diagnostics requires that all critical diagnoses be reviewed by
a second subspecialized pathologist. Furthermore, unique and complex cases
are reviewed during our daily consensus conferences, which maximize the
collective expertise of our pathology teams. Intradepartmental consultation
has been identified as a principal tool to enhance diagnostic accuracy.
Standard Diagnostic Criteria
Our pathologists use unique codes for diagnoses, thus creating a huge database
of well-codified results. This database can be used to provide benchmark
and quality metrics to you, automate integration of diagnostic information
with EHRs, and help with discovery of new biomarkers. These codes are
developed using standard diagnostic criteria and are continuously updated
with the most current pathological and clinical guidelines.
Inform Diagnostics maintains extensive EHR interfaces, which aid in efficient
transmission to our lab of clients' clinical notes and procedure images.
This ancillary information provides our pathologists the opportunity to
correlate clinical and pathological findings and deliver more precise
Confirmatory Ancillary Testing
Inform Diagnostics operates three anatomic pathology laboratories, and
a hematopathology specialized laboratory, for the most efficient, highest-quality
testing available. Our extensive test menu includes confirmatory stains
and molecular assays to support our histopathological interpretation and
provide you with more confident final diagnoses.
