May 17, 2018 — Enterprise imaging workflow software provider Laurel Bridge Software announced new capabilities for its Compass - Routing Workflow Manager. These include a transient and queryable cache designed to enable local study access while imaging exams reside in Compass. This will help ensure uninterrupted radiologist reading workflow when the ultimate image data source or destination is unavailable due to a LAN or WAN outage.
Incorporating a queryable cache into Compass will also enable teleradiology service providers to enhance the local availability of image data to their customers and radiologists. In addition, organizations utilizing cloud-based, long-term archiving solutions will benefit from having local, short-term storage to support their reading workflows.
Other planned improvements to Compass include:
- Enhanced support for normalization of patient demographics;
- Improved notifications for tracking image data movement;
- Expanded functionality and filtering for direct DICOM message routing;
- Improved support for federated queries, query spanning and multiplexing; and
- Support for improved encounter-based imaging workflow for point-of-care ultrasound, endoscopy and visible light photography through tighter integration with Navigator, Waypoint and third-party electronic medical record (EMR) solutions.
Laurel Bridge Software is also improving their Navigator - Imaging Retrieval Workflow Manager with more detailed activity monitoring and reporting capabilities. The software will also feature LDAP user authentication support for improved protection against cyber-security threats.
Laurel Bridge Software will discuss these and other forthcoming enhancements at the 2018 Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting, May 31-June 2 in Washington, D.C.
