Laurel Bridge Introduces Waypoint Consolidated Modality Worklist at SIIM 2018

Platform enhances data orchestration capabilities of existing fetching and routing workflow tools, while also enabling consolidation of existing modality worklists

Laurel Bridge Introduces Waypoint Consolidated Modality Worklist at SIIM 2018

May 10, 2018 — Laurel Bridge Software announced the introduction of the Waypoint Consolidated Modality Worklist. Waypoint is available as an add-on to other Laurel Bridge products and as a stand-alone enterprise modality worklist solution. As an adjunct to Laurel Bridge's Navigator Imaging Retrieval Workflow Manager, Waypoint enables women's imaging facilities to further improve clinical quality and clinical staff productivity.

Annual screening and certain follow-up mammography exams are often scheduled 12-24 months in advance. As a result, specialized workflow tools are needed to ensure all relevant prior studies are fetched in an efficient manner, prior to patient arrival at the imaging facility, and presented to the radiologist. When paired with Laurel Bridge's Compass Routing Workflow Manager, Waypoint can help automate the integration of images acquired at the point of care (POC), such as ultrasound, ensuring they are accurately associated with the patient's record by adding the demographic information from the scheduled encounter found in Waypoint.

As a stand-alone enterprise modality worklist solution, Waypoint can unify previously disparate imaging department workflows without disrupting them. This is achieved by consolidating multiple existing modality worklists and HL7 order feeds from across a merged health system, into a single enterprise modality worklist.

The initial installation of Waypoint is underway at Medstar Health in Washington, D.C., with a planned go-live in June 2018. Carl Swanson, director of imaging technology at Medstar Health said, "There are a number of point-of-care use cases where Waypoint will help with management of patient demographics, including bedside ultrasound."

Laurel Bridge Software will discuss Waypoint and its entire line of data orchestration tools and solutions at the 2018 Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting, May 31-June 2 in Washington, D.C.
