TeraMedica debuts at the 2012 RSNA conference its next generation Evercore VNA Control Center with a streamlined graphical interface and range of features that enhance its power as an enterprise-wide data management and analysis tool.
The new interface simplifies vendor neutral archive (VNA) configuration, maintenance, quality assurance checks and data access. It enables definition of new data sets and storage policies within the application, without the addition of tables at the underlying database level. The interface also enables creation of a variety of customized screen features based on site or department needs. New progressive intelligent information presentation brings the appropriate data directly to users to pare down time-consuming searches and to leverage the VNA for information gathering and analytics.
As a fully integrated enterprise-wide data repository, a VNA offers almost unlimited potential to gather information, track trends and provide intelligence useful to today’s hospital. Wheeler notes that VNA data could be used to assess the availability of hardware storage space over time based on usage patterns, to measure the utilization and profitability of medical equipment and to track the need for additional hospital physical space based on departmental trends. Access to this information can be enabled with appropriate built-in VNA tools or add-on applications.
To streamline implementation for existing installations, TeraMedica will expand Control Center functionality over time as part of a multi-stage process. Phase one enhancements, which are being introduced at RSNA, include a completely new look and feel as well as more intuitive, streamlined operation. The technology also will feature powerful, redesigned dashboards supporting ultra-fast display of VNA functions and stored data. The initial release also will enable configuration of highly customized screens with site-specific icons and toolsets that bring access to desired information under simple mouse click control. Phase two will include even greater customization options as well as other additions.
