The moment we realize that not everyone has the same fortunate and lives the same life as we do, projects like this seem so much more important as we might have imagined in the first place.
On June 27, 2023, Fujifilm South Africa and medical distributor Uni Medical Supplies have implemented a significant project in Windhoek, Namibia, aiming to improve healthcare across the country. By implementing Fujifilm’s Synapse RIS/PACS system, together with Uni Medical Supplies, we have been able to connect five state hospitals across the nation, allowing for the remote diagnosis of patient data. The commissioning ceremony was The event was held at the Mercure Hotel, Windhoek and was attended by numerous dignitaries, including Dr. Kalumbi Shangula, Namibia’s Minister of Health and Social Services.
The Fujifilm Synapse RIS (Radiology Information System) and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) platform ensures the efficient management of information related to radiological examinations across hospitals. The RIS platform helps with the scheduling and reporting of radiology appointments, whereas imagery acquired from there, whether CT scans or x-rays, is then digitally stored on the PACS system. Through the Fujifilm Synapse RIS/PACS system, all the data and imagery doctors need can be viewed digitally almost immediately, allowing for the ability to remotely diagnose patients from outlying areas. This not only shortens the time frame for treatment, but also addresses the availability of healthcare for remote patients.
It is finally here – The new Fujifilm Print Experience Centre (PEC) Europe, bringing together the most advanced technologies and products from the Graphic Communications and Photo Imaging divisions. Last week, we finally opened the doors to our PEC at our Fujifilm Europe Headquarters in Ratingen, Germany.
We welcomed roughly 100 guests who had the chance to get the first public glimpse into the Fujifilm world of printing. The innovative concept aims at elevating the value of the print medium through integrated experiences ranging from photographic to industrial prints.
The PEC represents a real “call-to-action” for all visitors, a collaborative space where they can imagine and experience the present and future of the printing industry in all its broadest forms. Additionally, it will offer training and demonstrations to Fujifilm customers and partners, as well as the opportunity to evaluate and experiment with varied media and receive support to achieve optimal printing results.
Sometimes getting out o the office, doing something out of your comfort zone and just enjoying the time and activity together as one FAMILY is what we need.
That is exactly what we did at Fujifilm in Germany yesterday. Our colleagues from our European HQ Ratingen, from subsidiary in Willich and FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals Europe GmbH came together to participate in the B2Run Dusseldorf, Germany. Not only did we do something good for the team spirit and our bodies by taking part in the 6 km race, but also we did all that for a good cause.
Even though walking and running are environmentally friendly activities, the organization of such events still consumes fuel, electricity and heat. In order to make B2Run as Co2 neutral as possible, B2Run is planting one tree for each team that registered for the race. Additionally, for each participant €5 will be donated to DKMS gemeinnützige GmbH, and B2Run will also support a water power project in Uganda, Africa, to reduce the environmental impact of conventional energy sourcing. The project is the Bujagali hydropower plant on the Victoria Nile at Dumbbell Island, north of Jinja, Urganda. Among other things, it serves to improve the reliability and cost of electricity supply for Ugandan households.
An experience we have not been part of for the very first time. Back in 2019 we have also been participating in the B2Run. We can already say that this will not be the last time Fujifilm participates in this team building event.

Empowering women in a male-dominated sector such as healthcare and science in general is one of our goals at Fujiflm Europe because we believe in the power of diversity and inclusivity at the workplace.
Therefore, we can proudly share that we welcomed 12 young girls between 12 and 15 years old at our Fujifilm Europe Headquarters in Ratingen, Germany for Girls’Day 2023. The goal was to inspire and motivate the next generation of female leaders to break the gender gap in technical and scientific fields, the so-called STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics) professions.
Girls’ Day is an annual event that aims to increase the proportion of women in male-dominated fields and reduce the shortage of skilled workers in the industry. It is a day that is designed to provide young girls with the opportunity to explore a variety of STEM careers, interact with female role models, and gain hands-on experience in technology and science.
Through small games, test and feel of some of our products, especially those from our healthcare department, as well as a few theoretical background information, we wanted to show these girls what a career in this field could entail. Of course, they also had the opportunity to get an exclusive tour of our Open Innovation Hub to learn more about Fujifilm’s evolution from a camera-based company to shifting its focus to the healthcare sector.
It was not only a new and great experience for us as a company, but also our young visitors have made some unique experiences which might help them to decide which career path they would like to choose in the future.
