Fujifilm acquires VNA leader TeraMedica

by Lauren Dubinsky , Senior Reporter
Through the just-announced acquisition of TeraMedica, Inc., Fujifilm Medical System U.S.A., Inc. has taken a major stride into the Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) market.

The two companies are no strangers to one another, having already been in a business partnership. In March 2013, TeraMedica and Fujifilm entered an agreement in which the health informatics company provided its award-winning VNA technology for integration with Fujifim's medical and imaging information management system.

Putting Your Enterprise Imaging Strategy in Place:

8 Tips for Selecting the Right Transformation Partner. As the healthcare industry moves toward a more personalized, value-based care model, choosing the right solution partner to obtain a truly transformational enterprise imaging strategy is paramount.

"VNA technology serves a growing number of forward-thinking health care enterprises around the world, realizing the promise of truly integrated patient-centric health care," Jim Morgan, vice president of medical informatics, at Fujifilm, told DOTmed News. "By achieving this across multiple health care applications, as well as IT systems and providers, it also is playing a crucial role in placing health care enterprises on the road to meaningful use."

TeraMedica’s VNA is a central, shared system that allows all patient data to be viewed across different departments within the hospital. Breaking down the silos that traditionally hamper communication between departments is important for facilitating the kind of collaborative efforts that are intrinsic to health reform.

"Together, we will be able to deliver medical informatics solutions that acquire, analyze, interpret and present patient data in ways that are meaningful for providers in the most challenging environments," said Morgan.

Among TeraMedica's VNA customers is New South Wales in Australia — one of the largest health imaging exchanges in the world. The system enables them to share medical images and complete digital medical records across multiple local government health districts with 110 facilities that care for over 7,000,000 patients.

VNAs are emerging as a crucial component in managing a growing body of data in a consolidating provider marketplace, and Fujifilm's acquisition will strengthen its position in the growing segment. Going forward, the company will be known as Fujifilm TeraMedica, Inc. To date, their software has been deployed at over 600 locations on six continents.
