November 3, 2016 — Dicom Systems announced that the company was awarded a vendor neutral archive (VNA) contract to deploy its Unifier Enterprise Archive at Dental Information Systems Center (DISC), located in Joint Base San Antonio — Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas.
Unifier Archive, a native VNA that was introduced to the market in 2012, helps end users consolidate disparate imaging systems into one repository, while providing enterprise-wide access to all medical images and medical records.
Dicom Systems EVP Florent Saint-Clair said DISC receives an average of 5,000 dental imaging exams from over 150 Army dental clinics worldwide every 24 hours.
Leveraging the Dicom Systems Enterprise Imaging Workflow Unifier, DISC will migrate in excess of 27 million dental exams from its current archive into the Dicom Systems Unifier Archive (VNA). Additionally, via Web API, Dicom Systems will perform real-time reconciliation of new and historic incoming records with the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) to ensure that the most accurate and up-to-date patient demographics are available in the VNA.
Finally, the Unifier Archive will enable Dental Information Systems Center to leverage and maximize its existing investment in long-term storage, without the necessity to re-invest in additional storage.
The functionality of the Dicom Systems Unifier Archive (VNA) includes standard compression of incoming studies, selective deletion/rotation of studies based on image lifecycle management (ILM) rules, DICOM pre-/post-filtering, routing and archiving, self-recoverable database architecture (with DICOM engine for image archiving and management) and dynamic retention policy based on the DICOM router's rules.
Other features that make Unifier Archive stand out from the competition include: RESTful, DICOMweb, API, FHIR bridge functionality, viewer integration and extensive LUA scripting framework.
