FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A. continues to expand its healthcare IT portfolio, and is taking Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) into new areas with its latest acquisition of TeraMedica, by further enhancing the patient imaging record at the 2015 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) on May 28 – May 30 in Washington, D.C.
"Fujifilm recognizes that VNA technology is becoming more important to the market," said Jim Morgan, vice president of Medical Informatics at FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc.
"Healthcare institutions and market shifts have created larger networks of facilities. Large hospital groups are coming together, disparate PAC systems are more common, and the use of electronic medical records has created central repositories of textual information. But what hospitals also want is to create a single repository for all their imaging data, in addition to other items like lab reports."
Today, VNA technology serves a growing number of forward-thinking healthcare enterprises around the world to realize the promise of truly integrated patient-centric healthcare. Achieving this across multiple health care applications as well as IT systems and providers, it plays a crucial role in placing healthcare enterprises on the road to meaningful use.
In addition to Synapse VNA, following is a summary of Fujifilm offerings:
The cornerstone of Fujifilm’s integrated solution is Synapse PACS. Two main goals – enhanced communication and optimized productivity for radiologists in any imaging environment – were the impetus behind its development.
The next generation of Synapse RIS, the most advanced Radiology Information System on the market today, will also be shown. Synapse RIS and PACS integrate seamlessly, allowing the radiologist to see scanned documents and history from within the PACS, and allowing the user to see images from within the RIS.
A VNA solution is not complete without an enterprise viewer capable of displaying all of the image types stored to the VNA, with the appropriate tools based on the viewing physician type or department, and ZERO PC requirements. Fujifilm will also showcase its Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer to expand VNA image access across entire health system.
