Perceptive Software’s Acuo VNA Named Global Leader in Market Study

December 30, 2013 — Lexmark’s Perceptive Software announced that its Acuo vendor neutral archive (VNA) platform was ranked by MarketsandMarkets, global market research and consulting company, as the world market share leader among all independent and picture archiving and communication system (PACS)-affiliated VNA solution providers. According to the report, "Acuo Technologies dominated the market," leading other vendors with a 30 percent market share.

The new MarketsandMarkets study, titled "VNA and PACS Market — Global Forecast to 2018," reports that the VNA is an "upcoming technology that has the ability to revolutionize imaging informatics."

The report estimates the 2013 global VNA market to be $165 million and projects that it will reach $335.4 million by 2018 at a double-digit compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.2 percent. Statistics in the report also indicate that across all global markets, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and rest of the world, independent vendors of VNA software will grow at a higher annual rate between 2013 and 2018 than VNAs offered by PACS vendors and infrastructure vendors.

The report describes Perceptive’s Acuo Universal Clinical Platform as a "VNA solution that is sold by hosted, non-hosted, and hybrid business models," adding that Perceptive’s Acuo VNA “has a strong market presence, with deployments at 1,000 hospitals across nine countries," including partnerships with AT&T Healthcare, Dell, EMC Corp., GNAX Health, IBM and Philips Healthcare.

MarketsandMarkets defines a VNA as an IT platform that "allows consolidation and long-term storage of medical imaging studies and other relevant medical data from multiple sources across healthcare systems in a standard format, ensuring interoperability," adding that it "empowers healthcare providers to manage and integrate the data in any clinical application by facilitating efficient communication with departmental PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems), EHRs (Electronic Health Records), and viewing tools. By doing so, VNA provides disaster recovery and lifecycle management of imaging data and shrinks the total cost of data management."
