January 21, 2015 — Fujifilm Medical Systems USA Inc. presented Synapse RIS at the 2014 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, Illinois.

“The functionality of a critical and urgent result module offered with Synapse RIS is a compelling factor for radiology departments and hospital administrators,” said Jim Morgan, vice president of Medical Informatics at Fujifilm Medical Systems USA Inc. “Visible improvements in workflow and efficiency in the radiology department will have a ripple effect that will spread throughout the hospital, positively impacting patients and caregivers with Synapse RIS.”

Synapse RIS offers a host of features designed to meet the needs of outpatient facilities, radiology groups and hospitals. The system has also received electronic health records (EHR) certification, enabling it to be part of the Meaningful Use initiative that provides financial incentives to medical professionals who use a certified EHR.

“The radiology department was making do with what it had, but our hospital administrators knew that major improvements were needed to guarantee critical and urgent results reporting,” says Luke Rissinger, BS, RT (MR)(CT), CIIP, PACS administrator, Schuylkill Medical Center. “The process was manual, inefficient and labor-intensive. We always were worried about accidentally overlooking something and having a patient who needed immediate care fall through the cracks. The critical/urgent results reporting and escalation management module in the Synapse RIS has changed this situation dramatically.”
