PACS AnalystLarge University Health Organization
"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!"
Gary FelixCardio PACS Admin, Children's Hospital & Med Center, Omaha
"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
"We replaced all of our other gateways that were configured individually for each client with Compass. The fact that Compass supports and manages unlimited sources and unlimited destinations was the perfect solution."
Jim OesterritterSourceHOV, Louisville, Kentucky
"We're extremely impressed with the throughput on the Compass routers."
David DonohueDirector, Information Services, Skagit Radiology, Inc.
"PowerTools makes analysis via Excel very handy. The Indexer is my preferred tool to use, as having the data in columns is the best!"
