A Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) is the First Step
A Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) has become synonymous with PACS and the management of medical images. The notion of a VNA is to ensure that healthcare organizations 'own' their own medical content - that it's not wholly controlled by the PACS application. The challenge for healthcare IT is that the definition of a VNA varies from implementation to implementation, and provider to provider.
At BridgeHead Software, we believe that VNA is really defined by what a customer wants to achieve. Some require the image archive to solve sharing issues, while others will assume a VNA will help them better manage storage.
Our view is that a VNA should provide:
- The foundations for better, secure sharing of healthcare data
- Advanced storage management capabilities
- A standards based solution, incorporating, e.g., DICOM, HL7, XDS
- Improved Disaster Recovery of medical image systems and data
- The ability to ease media and application migrations
- A full audit trail
- Publically described schema
We believe a VNA should not aim to replace large portions of the existing PACS, since these are already deployed. Nor should it replicate functionality already offered by the PACS - this would add an extra management overhead and create inefficiencies.
