November 30, 2008 - FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA acquired Empiric Systems, LLC, and expands the breadth of its Synapse portfolio.
FUJIFILM made the acquisition in a move to meet the diagnostic workflow, efficiency and compliance challenges of today’s radiology environment, healthcare facilities need a fully integrated solution. Fujifilm has already made substantial progress in integrating the Synapse and Empiric applications, and with the acquisition it is now in a position to deliver an even deeper integration that will yield the complete imaging informatics solution that healthcare facilities are seeking.”
The burgeoning mutual install base is evidence of the successful, FUJIFILM / Empiric collaboration of the past few years. In November 2007 the companies announced a formal reseller agreement under which FUJIFILM would offer and support both its Synapse PACS and the Empiric Encompass.NET RIS. Since then the two Web-based applications have been successfully combined and the integrated solution, complete with a single sign-on and single graphical user interface for the radiologist and clinician, has been deployed at numerous hospitals and imaging centers and health networks across the U.S.
The Empiric acquisition follows FUJIFILM's integration of ProSolv CardioVascular into the Synapse portfolio. This adds to Fujifilm’s offering of Web-based access to all mammography and cardiovascular images and information, as well as to all RIS data and reports, from one workstation, with a single sign-on and familiar user interface.
