Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc.
Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., was recently awarded a new 10-year contract with a maximum value of $768 million as part of the Digital Imaging Network-PACS (DINPACS) IV project from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Specifically, U.S. government healthcare providers can now purchase and install various technologies from Fujifilm’s Synapse enterprise imaging portfolio including Synapse 5 PACS, Synapse Mobility Enterprise Web Viewer, Synapse 3D, Synapse CV (Cardiovascular) and Synapse VNA (Vendor Neutral Archive).
Fujifilm’s technology will play a significant role in the MHS Genesis transition—a project that will replace the current electronic health system (EHR) used by the DoD and Veterans Affairs. Specifically, MHS GENESIS integrates inpatient and outpatient best-of-suite solutions that connect medical and dental information across the continuum of care, from point of injury to the military treatment facility. MHS GENESIS will support the availability of electronic health records for more than 9.4 million DoD beneficiaries and approximately 205,000 Military Health System personnel globally. It enables the application of standardized workflows, integrated healthcare delivery, and data standards for the improved and secure electronic exchange of medical and patient data.
Enterprise Imaging is rapidly evolving as a necessary organizational priority for health systems across the globe. The collaborative HIMSS-SIIM Enterprise Imaging Workgroup, which consists of representatives from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine, defines Enterprise Imaging as “a set of strategies, initiatives and workflows implemented across a healthcare enterprise to consistently and optimally capture, index, manage, store, distribute, view, exchange, and analyze all clinical imaging and multimedia content to enhance the electronic health record.” Fujifilm’s Synapse solutions under the DIN-PACS IV contract will provide core technology to allow U.S. government healthcare organizations to deploy an Enterprise Imaging strategy that addresses modern IT architecture needs, security, cost savings, operational efficiencies, physician needs, improved outcomes and diagnostic imaging.
To date, 29 facilities have already installed Fujifilm Synapse systems globally.
