VistA Imaging, the national system that enables VA hospitals to maintain an enterprise-wide paperless and filmless electronic health record, captures over 468 million images annually. While currently used at 10 of the 21 VISN’s within the VA system, managing a wide range of medical imaging workflows, Compass will now be deployed across the entire VistA Imaging system. Once completed, most, if not all, of the medical imaging studies managed by VistA Imaging will pass through Compass.

“We are humbled that our initial success improving VISN-specific imaging workflows has resulted in this opportunity to help the entire VistA Imaging enterprise,” said Mark Blair, president and chief executive of Laurel Bridge Software.

The Compass image routing solution from Laurel Bridge automates the ingestion and distribution of imaging studies among disparate clinical imaging and archiving systems, to ensure they are delivered at the right time to the right radiologist, specialist, or reading workstation, regardless of the number of locations.
