Recent enhancements to the Compass™ Routing and Workflow Manager include HL7 message routing, non-DICOM file transport, DICOM load distribution and balancing, and dictation system integration.

A new enterprise version of Compass that includes a modularly scalable architecture and support for unrestricted DICOM message types will be available later in the summer.

These new enterprise capabilities will enable healthcare providers to easily implement and manage a scalable workflow layer that enhances interoperability between multiple PACS, VNA, and clinical IT environments.

Integration of Compass with other Laurel Bridge solutions, such as the Navigator™ – Imaging Retrieval Workflow Manager can solve very complex enterprise imaging workflow problems. For example, retrieving and normalizing imaging studies from multiple facilities, PACS, or VNA systems.

"The imaging workflow needs of healthcare providers are more complex than ever," says Mark Blair, CEO of Laurel Bridge Software. "We provide centralized, scalable solutions for ingesting, routing and retrieving all medical images across the clinical enterprise and the varied IT systems they encompass."

Complex, mission-critical imaging workflows can strain an organization’s IT capabilities, particularly when multiple business entities and their disparate clinical imaging systems must be unified.

Laurel Bridge Software provides enterprise imaging workflow solutions, which reliably ensure new and historical DICOM imaging studies, HL7 messages, and non-DICOM objects are available to the clinical staff, at the point of care.

Laurel Bridge’s imaging workflow solutions have been implemented at thousands of healthcare facilities, teleradiology service providers, and radiology group practices in more than 35 countries, across 4 continents, both directly and through integration partners.
