What Clients are Saying

"Freeport Health Network recently received the Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award from the ASA. This was in part because our Compass router automatically ensures CT studies are delivered to the local radiologist and the remote teleneurologist necessary to support the time critical stroke intervention process."
Eric DittmarEnterprise Imaging Specialist, Freeport Health Network
"Our very busy breast imaging program requires interpretation of images from multiple systems quickly and reliably, but we struggled with disparate medical record numbers and wasted radiologist time fetching previous studies at the time of interpretation. Compass and Navigator solved this problem for us."
Helen S. Sandven, MDMedical Dir. of Breast Imaging, Asheville Radiology Associates
"The Compass workflow solution has revolutionized our Cerner downtime process by reducing the likelihood of human error and saving radiologist time. It has eliminated the need to manually place an order, choose the correct report template and add identifying demographics."
David E. Moore, MDRadiologist, Asheville Radiology
"I always felt that Compass was the strongest point in our CPACS infrastructure and once configured is something I could pretty much just count on working. A great product!"
