WEBINAR: Practical Integration of VNA into a Mature Imaging Architecture

Webinar sponsored by GE Healthcare

 Practical Integration of VNA into a Mature Imaging Architecture

During this webinar, Andy Strickland, director of imaging informatics, describes the role of VNA (vendor neutral archives) in University of Washington Medical Center’s enterprise imaging environment. With the growth of imaging, more attention is being paid to revenue capture and payors are becoming more insistent on documentation. VNA can provide an archive to the enterprise that’s easy to use and provide the documentation required for claim generation.

The webinar took place April 25, 2017. The recorded version of this webinar is available by registering for the event.

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
