Latest user-friendly features enhance efficiency, save time and boost productivity
STAMFORD, Conn. (Booth #207) – FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Imaging and Medical Informatics solutions, today announced that it will showcase its newest version of Synapse Enterprise Information System (EIS), one of the most comprehensive radiology information systems and informatics workflow managers on the market, at the Radiology Business Management Association’s 2019 PaRADigm Annual Meeting from April14-17, 2019 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO.
“Fujifilm’s Synapse RIS, a fully-featured workflow management solution that enables radiology facilities to take command of their operations, is one of the core components of Synapse EIS, a broad solution that can be used to optimize imaging operations across all inpatient and outpatient areas,” says Bill Lacy, Vice President, Medical Informatics, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “As market needs continued to change, we evolved our solution to support the administrative demands of virtually any healthcare facility, while helping providers better engage with patients and stay competitive in our new consumer driven, quality and efficiency focused, high deductible world of healthcare. While Fujifilm’s Synapse EIS is as relevant as ever to radiology groups, as a market leader in enterprise imaging, extending the robust analytics and workflow capabilities of this system beyond radiology to providers across the enterprise is a natural evolution of our portfolio.”
Fujifilm’s Synapse EIS Version 7 was designed to optimize imaging business for both outpatient and inpatient facilities. Synapse EIS can fully integrate with electronic health records, and works seamlessly with Fujifilm’s Synapse PACS, to improve tracking of patient workflow and imaging information across the entire healthcare enterprise.
Synapse EIS Version 7 offers a host of new feature improvements including a redesigned user interface that facilitates streamlined and consistent workflows; simplified functionality requiring less clicks and fewer pop-up windows; improved administrative options; and advanced data auditing via the browser agnostic web-based application.
A Patient Engagement Tool
Synapse EIS boasts easy-to-use patient engagement tools with automatic pre-registration and appointment reminders. Custom rules allow patients to self-schedule their appointments and receive immediate appointment confirmations. Patients also receive notifications indicating when test results are ready for review, enhancing provider-patient communications.
The tool also provides healthcare organizations with real-time patient data, including identification and address verification, insurance eligibility and benefits verification, patient cost estimators, and automated prior authorization processes. As a result, facilities reduce time spent on manual administrative processes and can uncover valuable, pre-visit insights to improve point-of-service collections. Patients face less paperwork and appreciate a better understanding of cost-for-service up front.
In addition, Synapse EIS provides digital forms via the Patient Kiosk to expedite self-check in time and enhance workflow efficiencies.
A System to Reduce Operational Costs
Synapse EIS partnered with Availity to help decrease time spent managing prior authorizations, which reduces the likelihood of denials, and ultimately improves operational efficiency through an automated and secure prior authorization process. The integrated solution also determines medical necessity of services and improves time-of-service collections with custom scripting for staff. Synapse EIS supports real-time access to data within existing workflows for registration, coding and billing, and claims processing with revenue cycle solutions.
Intended for imaging facilities, hospitals and health systems large and small, Synapse EIS is designed to improve operational, financial, and patient-satisfaction outcomes.
