SYNAPSE 5 | FUJIFILM'S new generation PACS


Five Challenges. One Solution.

Today’s dynamic healthcare landscape presents greater clinical, technology, and regulatory challenges that impact radiology, IT, and the bottom line.

1 Need for speed. As datasets continue to grow, imaging departments are under pressure to have studies rapidly available on demand. The challenge is to be fast without sacrificing performance.
2 Burden on IT. Larger datasets with prior imaging (such as MG tomosynthesis studies) are becoming more common, significantly increasing bandwidth usage. Medical facilities are merging, resulting in more desktops to be managed within larger enterprises. The challenge is to overcome these growing trends—bandwidth strain, reduced speed, and greater overhead.
3 Concern for security. Medical facilities continually fight to protect the privacy of patients. The challenge is to implement a secure solution designed to manage PHI without risk of breach.
4 Need for an Enterprise Imaging framework. Clinical & IT administration is faced with growing imaging demands from enterprise consolidation and unique specialty requirements. The challenge is to provide not just a viewer, but an organizational solution that offers an enterprise imaging informatics platform constructed to support DICOM & non-DICOM workflows.
5 Drive to improve user efficiency. Healthcare providers always strive to deliver the best clinical outcomes. That mission is irrevocably tied to greater productivity more than ever. The challenge is to find solutions that help users work both effectively and efficiently.

Synapse 5 is the fastest way to address these challenges. It is next-generation secure server-side technology that enables instant access of massive datasets using the most popular browsers with at least half the bandwidth throughout the enterprise

Speed Built In.

The new Synapse 5 is designed with speed at the core. Since the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, Synapse 5 eliminates the stop between the server and the user. Studies are launched directly in the browser, with no desktop client download. No waiting for images to cache.


Even the largestimages are availabler with sub-second speed

Bandwidth Friendly.

Combat ever-growing bandwidth utilization.
Synapse 5 consumes at least 50% less.

Network utilization is on the rise.
Legacy PACS are resources that largely contribute to that bandwidth consumption.

Managing imaging from the server side to the display—on demand and as needed, versus moving studies and caching them—results in at least 50% less network utilization with Synapse 5. This represents significant dollars saved for hospital IT organizations.

Tighter Security.

Server side design is fundamental to securing PHI. Because the application runs on the server, there is no need to move the entire study to the desktop or mobile device.

Large Healthcare organizations face many threats to data security and data loss. FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. makes it easy to backup and restore with state-of-the-art cloud-based datacenters.

Comprehensive Enterprise Imaging.

Fujifilm is the only large imaging company with the MI portfolio & underlying architecture to serve as a single vendor enterprise imaging solution.
