Fujifilm Showcases Enterprise Imaging Portfolio and AI Initiative at HIMSS 2018

March 14, 2018 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. recently showcased its enterprise imaging and informatics solutions at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition, held March 5-9, 2018 in Las Vegas. In addition to its extensive product portfolio, Fujifilm announced the expansion of its Artificial Intelligence (AI) Research Project into the U.S. market. Fujifilm’s AI development initiative will harness the power of AI to enhance its Synapse Enterprise Imaging and Medical Informatics portfolio. The company also introduced its newest brand REiLI, which will represent Fujifilm’s global Medical Informatics and Imaging AI technology Initiative.

Fujifilm’s Artificial Intelligence Research Project is based in Raleigh, N.C. — the global development headquarters for the Synapse Enterprise Imaging portfolio — in collaboration with Fujifilm Corp.’s development team in Tokyo that will provide a wide range of image recognition technologies. Fujifilm will partner with its strategic customers in the U.S. market to draw upon clinical insights and expertise to bridge AI applications to imaging informatics solutions. In an increasingly complex healthcare environment with massive datasets and rising demand for high-quality care, AI technology will have the potential to change the practice of medicine, according to the company.

Fujifilm Vice President of Medical informatics Bill Lacy said the company has received very positive feedback from healthcare professionals that have already seen live demonstrations of the AI Research Project, specifically regarding the speed and depth of integrated workflow achieved with the Synapse 5 server-side picture archiving and communication system (PACS).

“As we focus initially on radiology, and with a clear focus on supporting and collaborating with radiologists, not replacing them, artificial intelligence technology can help radiologists aggregate PHI faster for more informed decisions, and prioritize their work and time more effectively,” he added.

More information on Fujifilm’s AI Research Project was demonstrated at the company’s HIMSS booth alongside the following products:  

Synapse VNA — At the core of Fujifilm's comprehensive Enterprise Imaging portfolio, the TeraMedica division of Fujifilm’s Synapse VNA (vendor neutral archive) integrates more specialties, more devices and more data than any other VNA, according to the company. Healthcare organizations can achieve cost savings, improve clinical outcomes, optimize workflow efficiencies, securely manage all departmental data and experience imaging interoperability through the combination of Synapse VNA, Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer and Virtual Image Exchange.

Synapse 5 PACS — Designed with speed and functionality in mind, Synapse 5 PACS is a next-generation, secure server-side technology that enables instant access of massive datasets, working within the most popular browsers while using less bandwidth throughout the enterprise. Synapse 5 PACS powered with Synapse Communications features an enhanced suite of integrated tools including an integrated point-of-care solution, emergency department findings, results escalation and tracking, radiologist peer review, helping create a tailored workflow and a closed loop of communication between the radiology and all clinical departments.

Synapse RIS — Synapse RIS (radiology information system) helps radiology facilities take command of their operations. Synapse RIS is a full-featured workflow management system that is fully integrated with Synapse 5 PACS. It features an advanced scheduling intelligence engine, a patient portal, business intelligence analytics and productivity-boosting tools that include universal worklist and paperless consent forms. With its flexible architecture and modern interoperability standards, Synapse RIS allows practices to easily integrate with physicians in their community.

Synapse Cardiovascular — Developed with ongoing direction from cardiologists, Synapse Cardiovascular offers capabilities and tools that help streamline, image review and reporting across cardiac catheterization, electrocardiogram (ECG) management, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, 3-D imaging and vascular ultrasound workflows.

Synapse 3-D — Designed for use across multiple specialties including radiology, cardiology, surgery and more, Synapse 3-D is an enterprise-wide solution for quickly performing advanced visualization workflows and accessing 3-D-rendered images. Full integration with Synapse 5 PACS and Synapse Cardiovascular allows one-click access from any Synapse client.

Synapse Cloud Services — A scalable environment shaped to host and manage the Synapse Enterprise Imaging portfolio. Critical-access hospitals, imaging centers and teleradiology providers can take advantage of Fujifilm’s cloud-based infrastructure and interoperability of software to maximize efficiency and cost savings.
