CHICAGO, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Compressus, leaders in interoperability of disparate healthcare IT systems, and Medical Imaging Northwest (MINW) announced an agreement to implement a single Enterprise-wide worklist solution, integrating digital imaging and data management systems at multiple sites in the Tacoma, Wash., area, including Diagnostic Imaging Centers, Good Samaritan Hospital and Allenmore Hospital.
