Anyone using Care Fusion (Somnostar)?

Postby cloverdizzle » Sat Jun 28, 2014 8:24 am

I've used Compumedics, Embla, and Grass, but now it's time for another change. Anyone know of a deal breaker with Care Fusion? The nox interface does seem lame. Any issues with scoring, or other major gripes?

For the most part, I like Somnostar. Scoring is a pain at first, simply b/c once you assign a stage to an epoch, if you scan forward it'll stage each epoch the same stage. Which can cause confusion as to where you left off.

I've used Somnostar for many years and, as MrBig notes, it is quirky and takes some getting used to. Mine is an older version and does require some TLC to keep running.
To their credit, I have always found their tech support to be very responsive and fixes my problems within minutes. From what I hear from other labs, that is not the case with some of the other manufacturers. I can adjust to anyone's software, but I will not tolerate waiting hours in the hopes that tech support might call me back.

I am actually a big fan.. pretty stable software and excellent customer support. Just one complaint.......when the software was designed who decided to put the "Delete" study button so close to the "Copy" button? :shock:
