Fujifilm announced that its vendor-neutral archive (VNA) platform has achieved a global milestone, having served more than 1,000 facilities. The company’s enterprise-wide medical information and image management solution today manages nearly 10 billion objects, which includes both data and images; this has been accomplished through 350 installations across those healthcare facilities.
Capable of managing both DICOM and non-DICOM data, Fujifilm’s platform is a scalable single-storage solution. It provides lifecycle management tools to provide healthcare facilities with the ability to secure and control the entirety of their image data on an enterprise-wide basis. For users, this means access to imaging content from various specialty clinical areas. Further, the platform’s enterprise viewer enables a single patient-centric view across the continuum of care.
For example, Mayo Clinic started using the technology in production in August 2003. Since then, the healthcare provider has migrated a decade of data. The Synapse VNA manages more than 5.5 billion objects across 28 clinical and research departments, three major clinics, and the Mayo Health System, which cares for patients in approximately 70 communities throughout the Midwest and Georgia.
“The sheer scope and reach of Synapse VNA is undeniable and reflects Fujifilm’s strong foothold in the VNA marketplace,” says Greg Strowig, vice president of the TeraMedica division of Fujifilm. “Large healthcare organizations around the world continue to rely on us for our unsurpassed experience in this field and our understanding of how technology must link back to better patient care.”
