Fujifilm Receives Modular EHR Certification for Meaningful Use for Radiology

March 6, 2012 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. announced that Synapse RIS Version 6.1 received modular electronic health record (EHR) certification for Meaningful Use for radiology. 

According to the HITECH act within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, approximately $1.5 billion in incentives is available to radiologists who use certified EHRs and show that they use them in a meaningful way. Vendors such as Fujifilm submit their health IT systems for testing and EHR certification by an authorized testing agency as set up by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for health information technology.  Products receiving modular EHR certification meet multiple criteria, where as complete EHR certification meet all 33 ONC criteria.

“Having our Synapse RIS receive modular certification is a tangible step towards receiving complete certification,” said Jim Morgan, Fujifilm’s vice president of medical informatics. “This means that our radiology clients can address their Meaningful Use requirements that ensure an improved workflow and allow them to more quickly qualify for the incentives set forth by the ONC. Additionally, Version 6.1, our latest RIS, enables them to use improved tools to pre-set and manage patient dose and offers a new financial management optimization feature designed to improve facility operations.”
