Fujifilm Highlights Enhancements to Synapse PACS

New features add peer review, integration with RIS and VNA systems

Fujifilm synapse RSNA

November 4, 2014 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. will show several new technologies at the 100th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago.

The cornerstone of Fujifilm’s integrated solution is Synapse PACS (picture archive and communications system). New enhancements to Synapse PACS include Synapse Communications for tracking and reporting. Synapse Communications will feature Peer Review, Critical Results, ED Findings, and Fujifilm’s new Pulse for users to track all important study activities. Fujifilm will also focus on collaboration features accessible within Synapse PACS, including new mammography reading features, Synapse Commonview sharing capability for outside and cloud study transfers, and integration capabilities with other radiology and electronic health record (EHR) third-party vendors to optimize workflow.

Synapse 3-D offers more than 30 clinical functions to choose from, with many functions utilizing Fujifilm’s Image Intelligence capability. It is fully integrated with Synapse PACS and Synapse Cardiovascular, and creates a centralized enterprise-shared 3-D solution. The Synapse 3-D snapshot workflow creates a unique closed loop workflow from modality labs to radiologists and cardiologists to surgery with no redundant rendering work required along the way, creating faster workflows.

The next generation of Synapse RIS (radiology information system) 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.  New this year are native features that support the Joint Commission’s newly revised and additional diagnostic imaging standards for dose management, Fujifilm’s new patient portal and the new Synapse Analytics.

Synapse VNA (vendor neutral archive) continues to evolve within our medical informatics portfolio, enabling the management and distribution of digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) and non-DICOM information from any departmental system. New connectors to imaging areas capture content such as photos and surgery video directly or through API integrations with EHR vendors, or directly through new Synapse VNA mobile capture apps.  IT-oriented Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) features include multiple domain/organization structure access controls, virtualized platform and Oracle Enterprise Edition (EE) database. Synapse Mobility DICOM and Non-DICOM enterprise viewer will also be displayed.

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
