Quality Intelligence for Diagnostic Proficiency

In the era of consumerism and pay-for-performance, pathologists are compelled to measure outcomes; provide real means of reducing costs; and improve diagnostic proficiency. Because therapeutic decisions rely heavily on the presumed reliability of the pathology diagnosis, improvements in quality can help reduce unnecessary, harmful and aggressive therapy, or inadequate treatment.

To meet these demands, QualityStar redefines quality assurance in Anatomic Pathology by offering a unique alternative to in-house quality assurance and case review.


To meet the challenge of improving quality and reducing costs, QualityStar delivers a new metrics-based anatomical pathology quality assurance program utilizing Leica Biosystems’ Aperio ePathAccess, a cloud-based software solution, providing pathologists access to QualityStar’s national network of experienced sub-specialists.

By leveraging your whole-slide imaging platform investment, users benefit from reducing the overhead of internal QA processes and receiving feedback to improve their practice proficiency.
