Platform enhances adaptation and interoperability between existing healthcare informatics applications

July 1, 2016 — Vital Images Inc. announced the launch of the latest addition to its enterprise clinical data suite ­— the application neutral architecture (ANA) platform. This next-generation approach focuses on customer-centered vendor interoperability, rather than creating additional silos of large data prevalent in the “big bang” vendor neutral archive (VNA) realm. The company launched its ANA at the annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), June 29 – July 1 in Portland, Ore.

Vital’s ANA approach uses a sophisticated software toolset that facilitates advanced interoperability and workflow between existing healthcare informatics applications. The solution was specifically designed to address the semantic interoperability chasm between structured and unstructured datasets. The platform communicates with numerous sub-systems, such as enterprise content management (ECM), VNA and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), in synchronicity with electronic medical records (EMR), health information exchanges (HIE) and many other healthcare information systems. ANA promotes a federated, real-time access to information model versus the “big bang” centralization focus of a typical VNA project.

ANA provides semantic interoperability to all stakeholders in the healthcare enterprise, from providers to the myriad of EMR, ESB, VNA and other imaging and multimedia vendors. This enterprise-wide approach supports technology providers in their efforts to streamline workflow as healthcare organizations navigate the varied requirements of government regulations, accountable care, shared-saving programs, chronic disease management and bundled payments.

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
