February 7, 2011 – A diverse mix of advanced Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) installations has been implemented by ScImage. These complex VNA implementations re-define the routine, file storage task of a typical VNA.
Customers experience significant return on investment when the implementation provides diverse functionality beyond the basic VNA storage specification. Advanced processes, such as zero-footprint electronic medical record (EMR) Content Management, redundant multi-specialty PACS capability and order driven study routing characterize the significance of the Advanced VNA platform.
Examples of the diverse capability of the company’s Advanced VNA include a university medical center in New York, where it provides archive services for seven different PACS systems. It supporting five departments at two distinct facilities, including EMR image enablement for all connected systems.
At Diagnostic Imaging Associates (DIA) of Tulsa, Okla., which reads more than 2,500 studies per day, the company provides centralized content management, and a zero-footprint, multi-specialty image viewer. This allows DIA’s numerous clients to access their patients’ images and results easily and securely.
Newton Medical Center, in Newton, Kan., uses the VNA to link radiology, cardiology and mammography for central, mirrored storage. This provides a single-source EMR image integration, rules-based DICOM routing and DICOM tag morphing.
