IDC AICA Infographic: Enabling a 360-degree View of Patient Data
IDC Health Insights has produced an interesting infographic summarizing its view on the necessity for a new generation of clinical archives required to overcome the data management challenges faced by healthcare organizations in their attempt to achieve a truly patient-centric, longitudinal record. Based on its more detailed Whitepaper, ‘The Role of Next-generation Clinical Archives’ (see link below), IDC describes the Application Independent Clinical Archive (AICA), also referred to as a next generation Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA), as a means to provide a 360-degree patient view providing clinicians and support staff access to the vital data they need, when they need it, in the consultation, diagnosis and treatment of patients.
