Mach7 Named Leader in U.S. Healthcare VNA/AICA Unstructured Data Platforms

IDC MarketScape report recognized Mach7 for its’ patient-centric design, proven interoperability, functional flexibility, and collaborative customer approach

June 8, 2016 — Mach7 Technologies announced it has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Healthcare Provider VNA/AICA Unstructured Data Platforms for Integrated Care 2016 Vendor Assessment.

This study focuses on vendor neutral and application-independent clinical archive (VNA and AICA) platforms that allow providers to manage and provide access to disparate types of unstructured content among multiple departments, across the entire integrated delivery network (IDN) and between affiliated providers in the community.

Using detailed surveys and interviews with end-users, vendors and a review board of IDC experts, an accurate and consistent assessment of each vendor's characteristics, behavior and capability was created. Based on the review board’s findings, vendors were characterized as industry Participants, Contenders, Major Players or Leaders.

Judy Hanover, a research director at IDC Health Insights and author of the report, stated, “This report, which identifies Mach7 Technologies as a Leader in the VNA and AICA Platform space, focused on many variables including functionality and patient-centricity of the product, underlying technology, market knowledge and reach of the vendor, deployment capabilities, value relative to price and customer references for the product."

"The next generation of VNA technologies, AICA, has evolved as a strategy to support U.S. healthcare organizations moving to integrated care," Hanover elaborated. "AICA supports the needs of existing VNA users and systems while offering healthcare providers additional capabilities to address the challenges posed by the exponential growth of unstructured healthcare data and the deepening need for population health management (PHM) and the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) in new business models.”

IDC MarketScape’s vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor's position within a given market. IDC MarketScape provides a clear framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and current and future market success factors of IT and telecommunications vendors can be meaningfully compared. The framework also provides technology buyers with a 360-degree assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and prospective vendors.
