Pathology reports can be
- Typed as free text
- Editable text templates that are prepared once and saved. They can be loaded and modified whenever required
Any interesting pictures can be attached and saved along with the report.
In order to standardize the reports, preset templates has been built, in The Genitourinary and Breast systems, based on the templates provided by the College of American Pathology (CAP). This will allow the data to be stored in an encoded format, making it available for data mining and interpretation.
SEMA Sarl is currently building a comprehensive list of coded templates in order to cover most specialties and suit all needs.
