Biotech: Take control of your medical images with the Synapse Vendor Neutral Archive

Medical images are increasingly valuable to the advancement of biotech. From early phase discovery, clinical trials, and FDA submissions to post-market monitoring, data science, and training algorithms, the ability to store and share medical images across the enterprise is essential to the industry’s continued progress. Unfortunately, the images needed to fuel biotech’s clinical and research innovations are often stored in proprietary imaging platforms and other electronic data silos, preventing your imaging content from reaching its full potential.

With nearly two decades of experience implementing medical imaging informatics solutions in enterprises around the world, the TeraMedica division of Fujifilm is your answer to continuous biotech innovation. Storing more than 30 billion imaging objects from more than 1,000 facilities across six continents, TeraMedica can make true imaging interoperability possible to support your biotech goals. Synapse® VNA seamlessly stores and organizes study images so they are accessible for your unique purposes, whenever needed. The solution also integrates with third-party vendors, so current systems can be optimized rather than “ripped and replaced.”

The Synapse VNA solution

Fujifilm’s Synapse VNA can be configured to seamlessly manage medical imaging and clinical data across the enterprise. Using the same infrastructure to manage multiple studies, sites, facilities, departments, and business units, the solution also allows you to repurpose images for future use cases. You can extract, manage, and store images and associated header metadata from source systems as well as reuse the data in your applications of choice, including eClinical Data Management, advanced analytics, AI, and many more.

Key Synapse VNA features that can help fuel your organization’s biotech breakthroughs include:

  • Standards-based design that augments, not displaces, current systems to power unparalleled imaging access
  • Unrestricted access to images and associated clinical information directly from your tools of choice
  • Seamless interoperability with source and receiving systems—no expensive retooling of currently installed systems required
  • Scalable and configurable infrastructure that supports a user interface hierarchy and can be organized by study, program, user role, and purpose
  • Ability to link stored images by designated identifiers, such as participant ID
  • Database storage of header metadata from each image for fast and accurate searches
  • Management of DICOM and non-DICOM image types that span more than 30 specialty areas
  • Embedded workflow engine that delivers data wherever and whenever needed
  • Streaming or scheduled automated extraction and storage of images
  • Design, implementation, and support by global experts in imaging medical informatics and clinical system interoperability and connectivity
  • Petabyte-class architecture for unlimited scalability
