To help clinicians better understand meaningful use in imaging, TeraMedica has created the Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) Institute of Technology online educational program. Those who enroll at VNA University can take classes and seminars at their own pace and choose from a comprehensive range of topics, such as neutral archives, integrated healthcare enterprise (IHE) and meaningful use. It will provide the most up-to-date information regarding VNA education in healthcare.
The company says this impartial environment fills a void in VNA education, taking the learner beyond DICOM, towards meaningful use (ARRA) and other global health information initiatives. VNA University is powered by a comprehensive social networking ecosystem. Building on today’s social networking community, VNA University will serve as a virtual place of learning for the A-Z of healthcare and imaging informatics.
Also featured at RSNA 2010 was an application that visualizes all the clinical imaging objects from a healthcare organization, which helps support meeting the criteria for meaningful use. One click on a link brings up a window in the electronic medical record (EMR) record that shows all the critical imaging products that are associated with a particular patient. Both the patient and the physician can see all the imaging content involved in the patient history, quickly and easily.
