NEWARK, Del., Jan. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Laurel Bridge Software, a provider of enterprise medical imaging workflow solutions, has experienced dramatic growth during 2015 as a result of powerful trends in healthcare that are reshaping the scope and goals of many healthcare provider's enterprise imaging strategies.

Dramatic consolidation among healthcare providers is creating larger, more complex healthcare systems with many urgent needs: improving interoperability among their heterogeneous clinical IT systems; reducing costs; improving staff efficiency; and ensuring the organization delivers improved patient care. These organizations are also typically frontrunners in the effort to develop an enterprise imaging strategy, which improves access to, and sharing of, medical imaging information beyond traditional organizational boundaries.  Achieving these goals requires a strategic, cross-functional approach to automating enterprise imaging workflow mechanisms.

"We are seeing an increasing number of large health systems looking to solve numerous complex, interrelated image sharing and distribution problems that have resulted from a recent merger or acquisition," reports Mark Blair, President at Laurel Bridge Software. "These organizations, often led by cross-functional IT teams, want easily implemented, proven IT solutions that provide flexibility and control over clinical imaging workflow challenges that typically span non-radiology clinical departments and multiple facilities. This is a dramatic shift from the radiology-centric workflow requirements of the past."

These trends have resulted in over 30 unique healthcare provider organizations choosing to solve their imaging workflow challenges with Laurel Bridge Software in 2015. In addition, an increasing number of healthcare companies are distributing or utilizing solutions from Laurel Bridge Software to address their interoperability and customer needs.
