Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A, Inc., a provider of enterprise imaging and Informatics solutions, announced that its next-generation Synapse Enterprise Information System (EIS) has been selected by US Radiology Specialists – one of the country’s largest radiology groups – to drive efficient and high quality patient care across its network.

July 27, 2021 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A, Inc., a provider of enterprise imaging and Informatics solutions, announced that its next-generation Synapse Enterprise Information System (EIS) has been selected by US Radiology Specialists – one of the country’s largest radiology groups – to drive efficient and high quality patient care across its network. Synapse EIS, based on the foundation of Fujifilm’s Synapse Radiology Information System (RIS), is a comprehensive workflow management solution designed to streamline physician communication, improve patient interaction, and alleviate administrative burden for the outpatient imaging market.

US Radiology is one of the most progressive radiology practices in the country, made up of more than 300 radiologists, 3,100 team members and 160 outpatient imaging centers across 14 states. US Radiology will leverage Synapse EIS across its network, with features including:

  • Unique RIS regionalization which covers high volume radiology groups with multi-state, multi-time zone scheduling needs,
  • configurable scheduling with built-in logic that offers patients the first available appointment across its network,
  • pre-screening patient questionnaires with automated follow-up action notifications, allowing patients to spend less time on administrative tasks in the office,
  • tracking of patient progress through dedicated worklists that notify care teams when actions are needed,
  • built in, real-time radiology business optimization reporting and metrics,
  • built to scale to the largest environments, cloud ready

“We are excited to grow our partnership with US Radiology, allowing them to more effectively engage patients, boost staff productivity, increase practice profitability, and ultimately, improve the overall care experience across the entire network,” said Bill Lacy, vice president, Medical Informatics at FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc.  “We’ve invested significantly in the development of our EIS technology to specifically meet the evolving needs of the largest radiology group practices in the US, like US Radiology, and we believe our collaborative relationship will further drive quality, patient-centric care delivery.”

“Expanding our partnership with Fujifilm means we’ll be able to provide a consistent workflow experience across the entire US Radiology network - allowing our doctors, technologists, and imaging center staff to provide patients with the best care and experience possible,” said David Kleinman, Chief Information Officer at US Radiology. “Synapse EIS exceeded our expectations in terms of scalability, efficiency, and customer ROI and we are excited to extend the Synapse solutions throughout our network.”

The decision to partner with Fujifilm is in line with US Radiology’s mission to provide their partners with the resources they need to thrive in a constant state of change, sharing best practices, optimizing growth, and most importantly, elevating patient care.  Fujifilm’s Synapse RIS has been relied upon as the core information system at American Health Imaging and Touchstone Medical Imaging, both US Radiology partners, as those companies experienced exceptional rates of growth over the past 14 years.
