The Path to Vendor Neutral Archiving

The Path to Vendor Neutral Archiving
Archiving capabilities and vendor neutrality are relatively simple concepts to understand, but the overarching clinical, business, and operational benefits of a vendor neutral archive (VNA) are less intuitive. The versatility of a VNA solution can be leveraged as a cornerstone of an overall enterprise imaging strategy and further. A VNA offers value to a range of initiatives from a simple archiving solution to a complete Enterprise Imaging Transformation. 
 
This white paper explains what is needed to create a VNA archiving system. It was created by Ascendian Healthcare Consulting, which works with hospitals to help them implement PACS, cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) and enterprise data and imaging systems via VNAs.
