Stamford, CT, February 1, 2017 (Booth #551) – FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., and FUJIFILM SonoSite, Inc. will present its comprehensive Synapse Enterprise Imaging product portfolio and its SonoSite iViz solution which integrates ultrasound with medical IT at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference and exhibition held February 19-23, 2017 at Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The company will also sponsor an educational session titled “Value-based Care, Enterprise Imaging and the Future of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning”.
“Fujifilm has earned a reputation as a dedicated partner in helping healthcare organizations establish and grow their enterprise imaging strategy so that they are better positioned to deliver value-based care,” said Bill Lacy, Vice President of Medical Informatics at FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Fujifilm’s Synapse portfolio is the most comprehensive enterprise imaging solution available today and is designed to help improve patient outcomes and workflow efficiencies while realizing both cost savings and true interoperability,”
The following solutions will be on exhibit and available for demonstration at HIMSS17 Booth #551:
Synapse VNA— Synapse VNA is an enterprise-wide medical information and image management solution that serves as a vendor-neutral, scalable, and organizationally aware storage and distribution system for DICOM and non-DICOM objects. The most comprehensive application for storing and providing access to the complete imaging record, Synapse VNA securely integrates more specialties, more devices and more data than other VNAs. A depth of capabilities and vast experience will be demonstrated with encounter based workflows, secure mobile image uploads, organized data flow and management, cloud based disaster recovery, EHR mobile and web integrations, to name a few.
Synapse 5 PACS— Designed with speed and functionality in mind, Synapse 5 is one of the fastest medical imaging solutions in the industry, offering subsecond delivery of extremely large datasets. Its underlying architecture promotes significantly less bandwidth consumption and tighter security. Advances in efficiency and ergonomics facilitate productivity and a better overall user experience. The latest design includes server-side image rendering and a zero-download viewer with browser and operating system flexibility, resulting in significant IT benefits.
Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer—Utilizing the latest server-side rendering technology, Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer allows providers to securely and quickly stream all patient imaging data to authorized users. It can be accessed directly via web browsers, launched directly from the EHR, or on Synapse Mobility iOS and Android device applications. It includes a zero-footprint DICOM and non-DICOM image and report viewer for the entire patient record, a unique collaboration feature for DICOM and non-DICOM datasets that uses real time audio/video capabilities for live conferencing, and a new Share feature to exchange images or launch into other 3rd party integrations.
Synapse RIS—Synapse RIS is a full-featured, workflow management system that is fully integrated with Synapse PACS. It features an advanced Scheduling Intelligence Engine, patient portal, business intelligence analytics and has a flexible architecture with modern interoperability standards, allowing practices to easily integrate with physicians in their community. Productivity-boosting tools include universal worklist and paperless consent forms.
SonoSite iViz—Advancing Fujifilm’s integration of ultrasound with medical IT, iViz was designed for ultra-mobility. It allows seamless access to patient information as well as the ability to store exam findings, submit reports, and consult with remote providers for near real-time assessment, making it especially suited for field use. A next generation architecture and platform, iViz is the first medical visualization solution that is enabled for bi-directional EMR connectivity through the Synapse® VNA. Using this option, iViz accepts patient demographics from the EMR, eliminating manual entry and saving valuable time. With just a few taps, iViz can also send patient reports to the EMR.
Educational Session Focuses on Novel Technologies
Fujifilm will sponsor a complimentary Lunch & Learn session—Value-based Care, Enterprise Imaging and the Future of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning—on Wednesday, February 22nd from 11:15-12:15PM in Room 202A. Presenters include: James Whitfill, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Scottsdale Health Partners; George Shih, MD, Associate Professor and Vice Chair of Informatics, Department of Radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College and Associate Attending Radiologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Campus; David Wild, Director of Marketing, Medical Informatics at Fujifilm.
