Piedmont Healthcare Installs Perceptive Software VNA for Enterprise Medical Image Management

System selected to improve interoperability of existing imaging systems and provide better control of clinical data across regional hospitals and clinics

September 26, 2014 — Lexmark’s Perceptive Software announced that Atlanta-based Piedmont Healthcare will deploy the Perceptive Acuo vendor neutral archive (VNA) to consolidate medical image management for radiologists, cardiologists and other clinical users across all hospital and clinic locations.

The Perceptive Acuo VNA was selected to serve as the core technology platform for managing nearly one million diagnostic imaging studies performed annually across Piedmont facilities. Perceptive Software will also assist Piedmont in migrating approximately six million existing studies, stored primarily in radiology and cardiology picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) into the new enterprise VNA.

Piedmont Healthcare had sought an independent VNA platform to streamline management of medical images stored in separate clinical data silos, making it easier to share images across facilities and with referring physicians. They were also looking to reduce costs and complexity associated with moving clinical content from departmental archives to the point of care.

Perceptive Acuo VNA is an application, storage and viewer-neutral clinical content management platform that drives improved care delivery through a patient-centric approach to enterprise interoperability. It improves clinical workflow and archiving capabilities for healthcare organizations, enabling all clinical content (DICOM and non-DICOM) to be easily shared across the enterprise and providing greater freedom and flexibility in implementing departmental systems that best meet patient care, clinical quality and business process needs. Perceptive Acuo VNA also strengthens business continuance and disaster recovery capabilities with VNA software running in primary and secondary data centers. It stores medical imaging data in a standard format, providing interoperability among server and storage infrastructure, department viewing and workflow applications. This standard formatting also eliminates the need to migrate data whenever a PACS is replaced or when new facilities are integrated with the Piedmont healthcare

“The Perceptive Acuo VNA was selected to initially work with Piedmont Healthcare’s radiology and cardiology systems to improve clinical workflow and image sharing with physicians and other clinical staff,” said Rob Lipowski, director of healthcare solutions, Perceptive Software. “Their ultimate goal is for the VNA to become the platform for all unstructured content sitting outside the EMR [electronic medical record], enabling improved patient care by providing a more complete patient record for more informed medical decisions.”
