An enterprise medical imaging workflow solutions provider has released an upgrade for their routing workflow manager that will allow image record searches across many PACS systems, VNAs, and other clinical archives.

The software upgrade now enables a one-click search of the whole imaging record of a patient across any number of Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) systems, Vendor Neutral Archives (VNAs), and other clinical archives.

The upgrade of the Compass Routing Workflow Manager was released by Laurel Bridge Software (Newark, DE, USA), and now enables healthcare systems to use query spanning, and results filtering to unify access to a number of clinical archives, as well as Multiple Modality Worklists (MWLs). The new functionality provides scheduled procedures for a modality, federated identification of individual imaging studies for a patient, and integration with a Master Patient Index (MPI), or Patient Identity Cross-Reference (PIX).

The upgrade also includes system security, performance, scalability, throughput, performance, and ease-of-use improvements, as well as an improved mobile-friendly User Interface (UI) that simplifies enterprise user management and access. Security improvements include support for LDAP user authentication support for protection against cyber-security threats, and improved audit logging functionality that helps enhance system monitoring, and troubleshooting.

The Compass software can also be integrated with the Laurel Bridge Software Navigator, Imaging Retrieval Workflow Manager, which allows organizations to retrieve and normalize imaging studies from multiple facilities, VNA system and PACS, and solve other complex enterprise imaging workflow problems.
