It’s Time to Retire the VNA

In his May 1 blog, Time to Retire the term “VNA”?, Joe Marion, Founder and Principal of Healthcare Integration Strategies, makes a sound case for abolishing an outdated term, VNA or Vendor Neutral Archive.  While I agree with much of Joe’s argument, I’d like to take it a bit further.

What are your obsolete applications costing you?

As IT adoption grew within healthcare, it happened at different speeds and without a clear lead from the IT department. Many departments ‘grew their own’ applications. In fact, Radiology, in many hospitals, grew its IT infrastructure faster than the IT Department itself. Applications were often written or acquired by a clinician in the department without IT involvement, and when this person left or retired, the application was left unmanaged and unmaintained. Over time the function of many of these applications have been consumed by other systems but frequently this has left the original data at risk. This data cannot be simply deleted, at least no one is likely to authorise its deletion, and as a result legacy applications are kept running just to have access to their data.
