LEXINGTON, Mass., Jan. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of enterprise imaging and informatics solutions, has been named 2020 'Best in KLAS' for the company's Synapse® Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA). Powered by the TeraMedica Division of Fujifilm, Synapse VNA integrates more specialties, more devices, and more data than any other VNA on the market. Now, the robust solution has earned top ratings from healthcare providers in the VNA/Image Archive category of the 2020 Best in KLAS report.

KLAS is an independent research organization that monitors healthcare vendor performance. Best in KLAS awards are based on user scores compiled from the feedback of thousands of healthcare providers at healthcare organizations of all sizes across the country.

"Fujifilm is aware of the significant effort KLAS invests in delivering true assessments of each vendor's software and services, and that conversations with customers really shape this model," says Greg Strowig, Vice President of the TeraMedica Division of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. "We're so proud of the interoperability that Synapse VNA allows our customers to achieve, and the 2020 Best in KLAS: Software & Services report validates that."

The patented Synapse VNA is the core of Fujifilm's comprehensive Enterprise Imaging portfolio, and is an industry leader in the vendor-neutral archive market. By securely managing and sharing all departmental data, Synapse VNA empowers healthcare organizations to optimize workflows, achieve cost savings, and drive better patient care.

The 'Best in KLAS' designation is reserved for vendor solutions that lead those software and services market segments that have the broadest operational and clinical impact on healthcare organizations. These vendors earn the title of Best in KLAS, a recognition derived from direct provider feedback, through their outstanding efforts to help healthcare professionals deliver better patient care.

"Providers and payers demand better performance, usability, and interoperability from their vendor partners every year. Best in KLAS winners set the standard of excellence in their respective market segment. Earning a Best in KLAS award should both excite and humble the recipients. It serves as a signal to providers that they should expect only the best from the winning vendors," said Adam Gale, President, KLAS.
