Vendor Neutral Archives Gain Traction in 2010

July 22, 2010 -- The first half of 2010 has seen greatly increased activity in the Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) market. According to Wayne DeJarnette, Ph.D., president of DeJarnette Research Systems Inc., the company has witnessed a significant increase in all activities related to the company’s xDLTM, Vendor Neutral Archive product offering. The installation volume and rate is up, pre-sales activity volume is up and sales volume is beginning to climb.

The month of June saw the company go live with seven new Vendor Neutral Archive sites, with another eighteen sites are expected to go live by the end of August. The company’s first clinical VNA installation occurred less than a year ago, in July 2009, at l’Hôpital Général du Lakeshore in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Canada

During the first half of 2010, responses to requests for proposals (RFPs) and requests for information (RFIs) have kept DeJarnette’s proposal response team very busy, with the team frequently having as many as three proposal responses in progress at any one time. Most of these responses have been for large regional or state image archives, for the purpose of inter-site image data sharing. A few RFPs have been for single-site PACS vendor independent image archives. Vendor selection for most of these proposals will be made later this year or early next year. Nonetheless, this proposal response effort is beginning to pay dividends as the company has been notified of its selection as the “vendor of choice” for three new contracts, two of these for large multi-site regional archives and the third a luminary research hospital PACS vendor independent image archive.

xDL V3.4 software has been undergoing pre-general release testing at DeJarnette’s beta test site at Johns Hopkins, in Baltimore, Md. David DiNoia, DeJarnette’s director of xDL program management, said the xDL 3.4 contains many new features requested by customers and provides support for a larger range of reliable and inexpensive backend storage systems.

“This is a very exciting time at DeJarnette and in the industry. Vendor Neutral Archives are here to stay,” DeJarnette said. “The concept is gaining wide acceptance and its perceived value is high. We are clearly at the beginning of a paradigm shift in how image storage is perceived, used, purchased, and supported. Vendor neutral is not just an adjective used to describe an archive, it is also the end user customer’s state of mind.”
