In many countries there is a structural shortage of trained pathologists​. In much of Africa, for example, there is only one pathologist for about a million people. But even in countries with a well developed health care system, pathology is a bottleneck profession, with more pathologists retiring than graduating. In many pathology labs there is an accute workforce shortage of pathologists, and healthtech companies are struggling to find trained pathologists for their drug discovery projects.

The IPSCON Board members share a common belief that digital pathology will dramatically improve efficiency, productivity, and reliability. Most importantly, it enables pathologists to perform their biopsy analyses on cloud stored digital images anywhere and anytime, a practice often referred to as telepathology. Telepathology allows expertise to be shared in primary and secondary diagnosis and peer review, and exploited in places where there is a short of seasoned pathologists.

IPSCON's mission is to foster better treatment decisions and improve patient care by providing its services and expertise to hospitals, laboratories, healthcare research sites and companies worldwide.
By pathologists, for pathologists.
