November 15, 2018

STAMFORD, Conn.,(Booth #2545) – FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. will showcase its Enterprise Information System (EIS) at the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) annual meeting to be held from November 25-30th, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. Fujifilm’s EIS is one of the most comprehensive radiology information systems and informatics workflow managers on the market and will be available for demonstration in booth #2545.

“Fujifilm’s Synapse EIS offers a complete, fully-featured workflow management solution to support the complex administrative and business demands of a broad range of healthcare organizations,” says Bill Lacy, Vice President, Medical Informatics at FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Synapse EIS’s robust capabilities extend beyond radiology departments and outpatient imaging facilities to multifaceted inpatient organizations, offering a total solution that enables providers to better engage with their patients while also reducing operational costs.

Synapse EIS can fully integrate with electronic health records, and works seamlessly with Fujifilm’s Synapse 5 PACS, to improve tracking of patient workflow and imaging information across the entire healthcare enterprise. Allowing facilities to take full command of their imaging operations, Synapse EIS offers the following features and benefits:

Enhancing Patient Experiences 

Synapse EIS boasts easy-to-use patient engagement tools with automatic preregistration and appointment reminders. Custom rules may allow patients to self-schedule their appointments and receive immediate appointment confirmations. Patients also receive notification once testing results are available for review, improving the flow of provider-patient communication.

The tool also affords healthcare organizations access to real-time patient data, including identification and address verification, insurance eligibility and benefits verification, patient cost estimators, and automated prior authorization processes. Facilities experience reduced 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, this informatics workflow solution boosts efficiency and reduces waste with a kiosk that allows self-check-in using digital forms.

Supporting Organizations’ Bottom Lines

With an automated and secure prior authorization process, Synapse EIS helps to decrease the amount of time spent managing prior authorizations, reducing the likelihood of denials, and ultimately, improving operational efficiency. 

Synapse EIS also determines medical necessity of services, and improves time-of-service collections with custom scripting for staff.  

Revenue cycle solutions support real-time access to data within existing workflows for registration, coding and billing, and claims processing. 

Intended for hospitals, health systems and imaging facilities large and small, Synapse EIS is designed to improve operational, financial, and patient-satisfaction outcomes. To learn more, or book your RSNA demo with Fujifilm, please visit rsna.fujimed.com.
