In 2020 he launched PathNet, a novel hub-and-spoke virtual pathology practice model, which now provides digital pathology diagnostic services to under-served patient populations across 35 states. Committed to harnessing the potential of patient health data, he now focuses on improving cross-sector data exchange between technology, life science and healthcare organizations in the DDx Foundation.
