Fujifilm, Empiric integrate systems
Fujifilm Medical Systems USA Inc. brought its full line of scalable image and information solution for imaging centers to this week’s Radiology Business Management Association 2007 annual meeting in St. Louis, Mo. Fujifilm focused especially on its partnership with Empiric Systems LLC, to now integrate Empiric’s RIS functionality into its Synapse PACS and provide imaging centers with a customizable system. 

Fujifilm’s Synapse PACS integrated with the Empiric’s Encompass.NET RIS is a streamlined, full-featured system that is completely scaleable to the needs of smaller radiology departments and imaging centers. The integration enables complete access to the Encompass.NET RIS – including the ability to edit, dictate, and access reports and other data – while working within Fujifilm’s Synapse PACS, and likewise enable access to all PACS imaging studies and data while logged into the Encompass.NET RIS. 

Specific features of the integration include:
  • A single interface for access to notes, documents, reports, allergy notifications and other clinical information;
  • Dictation workflow through integrated dictation and transcription features;
  • Image access from the RIS for all users including clinicians and referring physicians; and
  • Single sign-on and role-based privileges via integrated user authentication.
