November 25, 2015 — PACSHealth will be introducing VNAHealth at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2015 annual meeting. VNAHealth is a new tool that enables enterprise imaging managers to monitor DICOM imaging studies as they move between imaging modalities, workstations and data repositories known as vendor neutral archives (VNAs). By building off their PACSHealth product, VNAHealth is designed to help healthcare organizations monitor and manage their complex enterprise imaging networks that are likely to include multiple picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and a VNA.
Access to, and the availability of, DICOM-based clinical imaging studies are vital underpinnings to realizing the clinical quality and care coordination benefits that are the promise of a sound enterprise imaging strategy. Because of the provider consolidation that has occurred over the past five years, imaging exams can originate from multiple disparate locations and be fed into a single VNA; thus monitoring each exam is critical to ensuring its' availability.
The benefits of VNAHealth include:
- Validate the integrity of exams as they pass from source to destination systems and provide inconsistency reports in real time.
- Provide enterprise-level visibility to the entire DICOM image database within the VNA
- Ensure the availability of a patient's complete imaging history to facilitate improved care coordination and clinical quality.
PACSHealth will also be demonstrating new versions of their PACSHealth monitoring and reporting tool, and their DoseMonitor software for monitoring patient exposure to ionizing radiation.
