The field of hematopathology has been a leader in the application of new technologies for both diagnostics and therapy. The ready accessibility of blood cells for examination, the ability to quantify important indices, and the relative responsiveness of otherwise fatal hematologic diseases to chemotherapy have all contributed to rapid advances in the field. Hematopathology provides many insights into the challenges that pathology informatics will face in addressing the needs of a growing and aging population in the era of personalized medicine.
