FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA, Inc.'s Exclusive Software Advances Cardiovascular Reporting Capabilities


3/17/2011 6:17:59 AM

STAMFORD, Conn., March 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ACC Booth # 2001 -- Further enhancing its cardiovascular reporting capabilities, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its Intelligent Structured Reporting (ISR) technology. An advanced software decision support system, ISR will be featured along with the complete line-up of Synapse® Cardiovascular products at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2011 Annual Scientific Session and Expo April 2nd 5th in New Orleans, La. Available exclusively from Fujifilm, ISR is the latest addition to the Synapse® family of integrated solutions dedicated to enhancing clinical workflow and increasing diagnostic certainty.

"The number of exams and associated workload for cardiologists and sonographers has been steadily increasing, so it's our mission to provide technologies that can enable them to be more efficient," says Jim Morgan, Vice President, Medical Informatics at Fujifilm. "Synapse Cardiovascular's Intelligent Structured Reporting is proven to increase productivity for clinicians, increase the quality of echocardiography reports generated, and increase the overall level of care for patients."

ISR Equals Increased Efficiency and High Quality

ISR increases user efficiency by enabling cardiologists to read more exams in less time. It does this by incorporating an advanced tool set that directly ties echo measurement data and clinical statements to a comparative knowledge base. This helps improve the reading accuracy and report consistency when interpreting echocardiograms. Advanced capabilities of ISR include the ability to monitor input echo measurements in real-time, warn the user of inconsistencies, and automatically complete an echocardiography report based on absolute and inferred data. The application also suggests further areas of evaluation based on clinical findings and outlines a treatment consideration for the patient.

ANew Era in Clinical Reporting

ISR brings a new clinical concept to echo reporting using the Agile Computing Theory. This innovative technology makes frequent, real-time updates to Synapse Cardiovascular to ensure that the cardiologist and sonographers are equipped with the latest cardiovascular information. This data is standards based and all suggestions provided by the system are directly traceable to a clinical source. The database includes thousands of peer reviewed clinical papers so cardiologists have the ability to prove statements and perform further research.

In addition to the Synapse Cardiovascular ISR technology, Fujifilm will also be featuring its full range of informatics products including Synapse® 3D and Synapse® Mobility at the 2011 ACC. For more information on these products visit booth number 2001 or log on to www.fujimed.com.
