“Fujifilm Medical Systems is a leading provider of products and solutions that meet the needs of healthcare facilities coast to coast,” said Jim Morgan, vice president of Medical Informatics, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Expansion and improvement of our products to meet the rapidly evolving needs of our customers, - management teams and I.T. staffs—is part of the partnership that our customers expect of us.”

Please visit Fujifilm at the HIMSS conference, where Fujifilm representatives will be discussing its complete line up of Synapse products at booth #541.

Following is a summary of these offerings:

At the core of Fujifilm’s integrated solution is Synapse PACS. Two main goals – enhanced communication and optimized productivity for radiologists in any imaging environment – were the impetus behind its development.

Also to be showcased is the advanced Synapse Cardiovascular, a web-based platform uniquely suited to fit into any facility’s I.T. infrastructure, physical or virtual. It creates finalized, signed cardiovascular-structured reports quickly and easily. Advanced tools that help quantify results, such as interactive diagrams and freehand drawing tools, add to its advantages. It can be optimized for cardiac catheterization, invasive peripheral vascular, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, vascular ultrasound and cardiac CT and MRI procedures.

Radiologists and cardiologists interested in advanced visualization and analysis will find the innovations of Fujifilm’s Synapse 3D very appealing for their diagnostic needs. It is fully integrated with Synapse PACS and Synapse Cardiovascular, and eliminates the need to access advanced diagnostic tools from a separate workstation or with a separate login. Patient lists are synchronized with Synapse PACS, making it up to date at all times.

The next generation of Synapse RIS, the advanced Radiology Information System on the market today, will also be shown. Synapse RIS offers a host of features designed to meet the needs of outpatient facilities, radiology groups and hospitals. The system has also received EHR certification, enabling it to be part of the Meaningful Use initiative that provides financial incentives to medical professionals who use a certified EHR.

Fujifilm has also announced the integration of vendor neutral architecture (VNA) into its Synapse portfolio. Synapse VNA will enable Synapse PACS, Synapse RIS, Synapse Cardiovascular and Fujifilm’s entire informatics platform to communicate seamlessly with all databases and storage systems throughout a healthcare facility’s I.T. infrastructure.

Fujifilm will also share the benefits of its zero footprint mobile application, Synapse Mobility. The application enables access to Fujifilm’s suite of Synapse products from hand-held devices, in addition to Macintosh- or Windows-based PCs.
