Fujifilm Exhibits Enterprise Imaging Solutions and Artificial Intelligence Initiative at HIMSS 2019

February 15, 2019 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. and Fujifilm SonoSite Inc. showcased their enterprise imaging and informatics solutions at the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) global conference and exhibition, Feb. 11-15 in Orlando, Fla. Fujifilm's comprehensive Synapse Enterprise Imaging portfolio was available for demonstration in their booth. New this year, SonoSite Synchronicity, Fujifilm's informatics workflow solution designed specifically for point-of-care ultrasound, was also on display. In addition, Fujifilm featured an area within its booth dedicated specifically to its latest advancements in artificial intelligence (AI).

Fujifilm's portfolio of Synapse Enterprise Imaging solutions is comprised of Synapse PACS (picture archiving and communication system), VNA (vendor neutral archive), Cardiology, 3-D, Enterprise Viewer, Cloud Services and Information Systems.

HIMSS attendees were also invited to see first-hand how Fujifilm's AI platform — powered by server-side informatics technology — can help advance patient care, improve workflows and drive new research forward. Under the REiLI brand, the company is working with academic institutions, Synapse customers and company partners to develop AI technologies powered by Fujifilm's deep learning technology and image processing. The AI platform is a work in progress and is not commercially available in the United States.

Applications currently in development include, but are not limited to:

  • Region Recognition, an AI technology to accurately recognize and consistently extract organ regions, regardless of deviations in shape, presence or absence of disease, and imaging conditions;
  • Computer Aided Detection, an AI technology to reduce the time of image interpretation and support radiologists' clinical decision making; and
  • Workflow Support, using AI technology to realize optimal study prioritization, alert communications of AI findings and report population automation.

Visitors to Fujifilm's booth also had the opportunity to see SonoSite Synchronicity software in action. Launched in late 2018 and designed specifically for point-of-care ultrasound, this solution helps healthcare organizations optimize workflows, maximize financial return, improve quality assurance efficiency and streamline credentialing processes.

Adhering to Protected Health Information (PHI) guidelines, the solution helps organizations achieve higher security confidence through Active Directory authentication. Additional features include built-in, customizable worksheets, intuitive dashboards, and the ability to access the tool from a computer, tablet or mobile device. A simplified reporting process ensures all exams are compliant with billing requirements, helping to maximize an organization’s bottom line.

Easily installed and scalable, SonoSite Synchronicity software was engineered to meet every organization's unique requirements for standardization, consistency and compliance across entire medical networks.
