June 1, 2015 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. continues to expand its healthcare information technology (IT) portfolio with its latest acquisition of vendor neutral archive (VNA) provider TeraMedica Inc. Fujifilm highlighted this expansion at the 2015 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), May 28–30 in Washington, D.C.
Today, VNA technology serves a growing number of forward-thinking healthcare enterprises around the world to realize the promise of integrated patient-centric healthcare. Achieving this across multiple healthcare applications as well as IT systems and providers, it plays a crucial role in placing healthcare enterprises on the road to meaningful use.
In addition to Synapse VNA, following is a summary of Fujifilm offerings:
The cornerstone of Fujifilm’s integrated solution is Synapse PACS (picture archiving and communication system). Two main goals – enhanced communication and optimized productivity for radiologists in any imaging environment – were the impetus behind its development.
The next generation of Synapse RIS (radiology information system) were also be shown. Synapse RIS and PACS integrate seamlessly, allowing the radiologist to see scanned documents and history from within the PACS, and allowing the user to see images from within the RIS.
A VNA solution is not complete without an enterprise viewer capable of displaying all of the image types stored to the VNA, with the appropriate tools based on the viewing physician type or department, and zero PC requirements. Fujifilm also showcased its Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer to expand VNA image access across the entire health system.
