MINW and Compressus announce agreement to implement worklist system

Compressus, a provider of services for interoperability of disparate healthcare IT systems, and Medical Imaging Northwest have announced an agreement to implement a single enterprise-wide worklist system, integrating digital imaging and data management systems at multiple sites in the Tacoma, US, including Diagnostic Imaging Centers, Good Samaritan Hospital and Allenmore Hospital.

Compressus has said that Medical Imaging Northwest (MINW) selected Compressus to complete an enterprise-wide integration of its disparate remote installation services (RIS), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), voice recognition software and workstation viewers by early 2009.

Involving the installation of a spectrum of MEDxConnect System components, the implementation is designed to provide workflow and data management, workflow viewing, patient ID management and short term archiving requirements to support its service expansion goals of handling more than 550,000 diagnostic imaging exams a year.

According to Compressus, the MINW implementation is expected to emphasize on the electronic collection and distribution of DICOM and HL7 digital imaging data, including integrating with McKesson PACS for storage and retrieval transmission of imaging data to McKesson HRS and Kodak Carestream workstations, and integration to the RIS either directly or through Cloverleaf.

Another central component of the system will be integrating to PowerScribe version 4.8 voice recognition software for the generation of reports and addendums.
