Stamford, CT, June 27, 2016 FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of diagnostic imaging products and medical informatics solutions, will present its comprehensive Synapse® portfolio – including PACS, VNA, 3D, RIS, cardiovascular and mobile offerings—at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2016 Annual Meeting held June 29-July 1, 2016 in Portland, Oregon.


We have seen a lot of change happening in Imaging Informatics, as evidenced at the last few SIIM meetings. Healthcare organizations are tasked with improving the quality of care, providing more access to the PMR while at the same time tightening up the security of patient information, and still reducing the cost of delivering care. As a vendor, our role is to bring continuous innovation to the market that is aligned with these needssaid Bill Lacy, Vice President of the Medical Informatics Business at FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Fujifilm believes that the suite of best of breed informatics solutions is just the type of Innovation, healthcare providers need to achieve performance, security, and quality.”


The following are some highlights of what will be on display in the Fujifilm Booth # 515 at SIIM 2016:


Synapse 5FDA 510(k) cleared in February 2016, Synapse 5 is Fujifilm’s most recent innovation in PACS technology. Designed to boost productivity and accuracy, Synapse 5 delivers server-side image visualization, with a zero-download viewer utilizing a browser-independent desktop experience. Synapse 5 stands to save organizations significant resources due to less desktop management, and a dramatic reduction in bandwidth requirements, which many are currently consuming today with last generation PACS technology. With no desktop caching there is no more secure way to deliver PACS, and server side imaging offers the most optimal performance for large data set reading like Breast Tomosynthesis. Fujifilm's large base of current PACS customers will be able to take advantage of the speed of Synapse 5 through an upgrade to their current system.


Synapse VNA – Designed to help providers move to value based healthcare by improving the management, access to, and security of content included in the patient's medical record, while at the same time reducing costs. Synapse VNA manages all enterprise clinical imaging content, both DICOM and native non-DICOM, using the most secure, scalable single storage solution available. Equipped with advanced life cycle management tools, it offers organizations the ability to secure and enable control of all image data across the enterprise. A true enterprise imaging solution, Synapse VNA's allows users to connect imaging content from more specialty clinical areas than any other system, accomplished by over a decade of experience. The newest generation—Synapse VNA 6.0—further enhances the patient imaging record with an enterprise viewer that provides a single patient-centric view across the entire continuum of care.
