Real-time telepathology and digital pathology provider Augmentiqs announced the introduction of a new payment model for telepathology, allowing pathology labs to immediately integrate the Augmentiqs’ solution for real-time telepathology. The main goals of this rental and leasing pricing model are to reduce the internal challenges of labs in integrating new technologies, a process that generally requires prior approval in the annual budget. This telepathology as a service model should help labs maintain, and even improve performance during a time when travel restrictions being placed have the potential to negatively effect lab operations.
The simple rental agreement for the Augmentiqs imaging system and software is $750 per month, allowing a low-risk and immediate solution that combines high resolution microscope imaging with real-time communications.
Augmentiqs will allow labs to rent the Augmentiqs system on a short term basis with no commitment to purchase, or to spread out payments for a full purchase until the next fiscal year. $750 per month for a Plug & Play solution that operates directly from the existing microscope and PC.
Labs interested in renting the system with Augmented Reality and pathology informatics capabilities may do so for an extra $200 per month/per add-on.
