The VNA for your Expanding Healthcare Enterprise

Transition your Clinical Data Easily into a New Healthcare System

Different procedure codes?
Different body codes?
Different patient IDs?
Different technology vendors?....No Problem.

Whether it’s one hospital or many, the changing footprint of a healthcare system brings significant opportunity, as well as sizable challenges. Fortunately, our Synapse® VNA can serve as the framework and facilitator for securing COMPLETE enterprise clinical content interoperability – both quickly and easily. We perform data transformation by understanding and adapting to differing rules and policies across the enterprise. A great case example exists at HealthShare NSW (New South Wales, Australia), where our VNA connects 110+ clinical facilities through image and report exchanging.

HealthShare NSW is a complex organization with multiple PACS, multiple RIS, multiple EMR systems, and multiple patient IDs. FUJIFILM TeraMedica, Inc. has simplified the user experience across the enterprise, bringing all these variables under control.

Looking at a more “generic” enterprise representation, Synapse VNA can take a siloed configuration of independent clinical operations and transform it into a unified health system, providing cost-effective and quality-improved patient care. Example benefits include:

• Ability to share clinical content anywhere, anytime, across the healthcare enterprise
• Ability to limit data access by staff member, department or facility
• Ability to manage a single data repository with consistent image lifecycle management
• Ability to change technology vendors without costly data migrations
• Ability to dynamically transform data across the healthcare enterprise

Whether clinical image interoperability is needed across facilities or across clinical departments, Synapse VNA has it covered using global formats such as MPEG, JPEG and PDF, as well as other critical clinical content such as treatment plans or reports. This ability to store and distribute natively in non-standard formats for each department is a uniquely valuable attribute of our solution. Enterprise landscapes are forever changing and our vendor neutral architecture ensures maximum adaptability, scalability, and flexibility in order that healthcare leaders can drive change – without being handcuffed.


“The ability to store such things as enterprise digital pathologic slides, visible light photos, and DICOM radiology and cardiology clinical and research images is important to the success of our clinical and research missions.”
