Maximize Clinical Input
A central, shared system where all patient information can reside, free from the binds of vendors and data type
Our Synapse VNA solution enables complete control and access to imaging data throughout the healthcare enterprise, regardless of the technology-generating source, format type, or siloed storage system. Synapse VNA manages ANY form of digital clinical content that can be associated with patient/study context, e.g., DICOM and non-DICOM (PDF files, video files, sound files, JPEG, TIFF images, and more).
All clinical inputs and outputs for over 30 specialties
As this chart indicates, DICOM is but a fraction of the total relevant clinical content necessary to produce a complete patient record.

Seamless Point-of-care Data Capture
Synapse VNA Connext Mobile brings groundbreaking, seamless point-of-care data capture and management to mobile devices.
At the touch of a button, Synapse VNA acquires photos, videos, sound files, and notes with the highest level of security. Data is automatically archived directly to the hospital's Synapse VNA as an integral part of the patient record for viewing through an EMR and our integrated viewer.
Users launch the Connext Mobile app by selecting a patient from the worklist-driven application or EMR mobile integration and capturing data to a folder associated with the patient context and visit, encounter, or order in the hospital's Synapse VNA. All captured data is automatically stored to the appropriate patient folder and can be viewed seamlessly from within the EMR through an integrated link to the Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer. The Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer provides a complete clinical patient history with the display of both DICOM and non-DICOM data, including full non-DICOM toolsets.
Once uploaded, the mobile data is managed using the patented clinical lifecycle rules within Synapse VNA. Synapse VNA Connext provides a high level of security for all captured data by utilizing server-based user authentication and encrypted data capture and transmission, protecting data even in the event of device loss.
In short, Synapse VNA Connext is a complete, seamless, mobile data-integration tool for the archive, providing:
- Simplified mobile data capture
- EMR integration for viewing and distribution via Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer
- EMR mobile app integration for data capture
- Worklist-based patient context
- Intelligent clinical lifecycle management for mobile data
- Security with single sign-on and encrypted transmission
- Transmission status with retry abilities and tracking
Synapse VNA Connext Web makes it easy to add files to the patient record with an easy-to-use, drag and drop interface. Similar to Connext Mobile, you can identify the patient from an encounters-based worklist, eliminating the need for manual order or data entry. Alternately, click a link in your EMR and the Connext Web screen loads with the patient information and encounter/visit pre-entered. This streamlines your workflow, eliminating any duplicate data entry and reducing the chance of patient misidentification.
Connext Web can be used to upload any content to the VNA, such as PDF reports, hand-written notes, images from a DSLR camera, video recordings or files from other proprietary (and unconnected) systems. Add custom descriptions and department specific labels for easy identification later on and comparison with like priors. Multiple files can be grouped into folders, or associated with existing DICOM studies.
Files are stored securely in the Synapse VNA and a link is sent to the EMR so clinicians can access them throughout the hospital in the Enterprise Viewer.
