PathCare Services For Doctors

According to the UK Department of Health, 70% of clinical decisions are informed by laboratory medicine. We believe this is also true in the African context. At PathCare we strive to add value to patient management by constantly reviewing and improving our services, and also by continuously implementing new and innovative diagnostic tests.

Reading your pathology report

At the root of each expert pathology report lies our care and concern for the health of each patient we deal with. Patients may never see their pathologist, but pathologists can built up a clear picture of each case through laboratory results.

The benefits of retrieving results electronically:

  • Convenience – you can retrieve your patients’ pathology results from anywhere in the world at anytime of the day
  • Time saving – the need to call our laboratories for results is reduced because you can easily retrieve your patients results via the internet from your desktop computer, laptop, iPad, tablet or smart phone
  • Track your patients’ records – we have designed our electronic results system to enable you to track your patients’ pathology history and their response to treatment.
  • Share data with your patients or colleagues – you can conveniently and confidentially sms or e-mail your patients or colleagues directly from our system
