Fujifilm Medical Systems USA introduced a comprehensive set of automated remote monitoring services for its Synapse PACS at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society annual conference in Orlando, Feb. 22 to 26. Active Monitoring continuously and securely monitors and logs performance metrics of a facility's Synapse system. The goal is to proactively detect system anomalies and remedy them before they cause serious problems. Performance metrics include CPU and memory utilization and available disk space. Specific component and status information, including operating system/application version and patch levels, and network address, are monitored and measured against predetermined performance thresholds. When it detects conditions that are out-of-tolerance, Active Monitoring automatically alerts an appointed system administrator, via e-mail or pager, to remedy the issue.
