One of the greatest challenges in dermatology is the vast number of different types of skin disorders.
These disorders can then manifest themselves in a variety of different ways based off patient-specific factors that make it difficult to accurately diagnose the problem.
A lesion, rash or pigment change could be the result of inflammation, infection, or a more significant acute or chronic pathological process. Many infectious diseases such as human papillomavirus, tinea, herpes, measles, varicella and impetigo have primary skin manifestations and may be quickly identified. However, there are other skin disorders that present with atypical presentations that may require rapid and accurate diagnostics combined with an expert team of pathologists to gain a full understanding of the clinical presentation.
KorPath™ offers the clinician access to the most advanced molecular methodology for pathogen detection, semi-quantification, and resistance gene identification. KorPath™ delivers rapid and precise results accompanied by PharmD guidance that considers published sensitivity and susceptibility patterns, medication costs, antibiotic spectrum of activity, and FDA guidance.
The end product is a patient-centered, value-based care solution that enables providers to make informed treatment decisions that could avoid inappropriate therapy, excess costs, adverse drug events and the progression of disease.
