Latest Version of Fujifilm's Synapse RIS and TeleRIS Now Available

July 26, 2011 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. announced the commercial availability of version 6.0, the latest version of the company's Synapse radiology information system (RIS) and Synapse TeleRIS applications. The new addition includes support for Microsoft's latest .NET Framework 4.0 platform, along with enhancements to the Synapse Communication tool set, and new features specifically designed for radiology groups.

Among the comprehensive list of advanced capabilities available in version 6.0 are:

Web-form controls: More control of the individual graphical user interface is provided via the ability to modify the appearance and placement of the application options and icons on the workstation screen.

Dynamic updating worklists: Data found on the version 6.0 worklists are now automatically updated within the system instead of relying upon a standard web page refresh, increasing speed and improving performance.

Configurable home page: Facilitates the layout and appearance of desired application functions and creation of charts and graphs to display and monitor important stats such as productivity, exam status, fax report monitoring, patient wait time, low inventory items, and more.

Configurable radiology reports to referrers: Design customized layouts and templates including headers, footers, fonts, colors and logos for radiology reports that are sent to referring physicians.

Multi-day scheduler: Schedulers can view medical resources in a daily view, a three-day view, or a weekly view, and, when a reschedule has been requested, can drag and drop appointments to a new slot.

Enterprise hospitals systems including Valley Baptist Health System, an 800-bed regional center located in Harlingen, Texas; and Aultman Hospital, an 808-bed hospital located in Canton, Ohio, are implementing the new version.

Synapse Communications, an integrated component of the Synapse RIS products, includes updates to its instant messaging and critical results notification capabilities. It is also available as an adjunct tool for Synapse picture archiving and communication system (PACS) users. Voice and video conferencing promote further interdepartmental collaboration.

With the Urgent Findings Reporting Module, users can group critical result types together and, based upon the "type," configure and require a specific action to occur both externally and internally. As with Fujifilm's complete medical informatics product portfolio, the new software is designed to also run in a virtualized environment which is proven to lower hardware acquisition costs and reduce power consumption.

In addition to the Synapse RIS version 6.0, Fujifilm will also be featuring its full range of informatics products, including Synapse 3-D and Synapse Mobility, at the 2011 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) meeting.
