AN END TO INFORMATION SILOS

Where are your images?
For most healthcare enterprises, the answer is “here and there.” But that’s not good enough. You need tools that help you meet today’s twin challenges of simultaneously reducing the costs of healthcare delivery while improving the delivery of patient care. And that requires fast, easy access to the patients’ images, no matter where they come from, for clinicians, referring physicians and the patients themselves.

MANAGE IT INFRASTRUCTURE AND COSTS

A fragmented IT infrastructure creates unnecessary costs.

If each PACS needs a specific storage system, it results in excess capacity, multiple disaster recovery strategies and complex end-of-life management.

The consolidated Enterprise Imaging VNA, can support a long-term strategy, while eliminating unnecessary costs and giving you more control.

CONSOLIDATE YOUR DATA

Aicon_blue_VNAs part of the Enterprise Imaging solution, the VNA consolidates all your imaging data, from multiple systems, departments, facilities and vendors, into a central clinical data foundation.

Your data ownership, migration and storage costs are reduced, while management is simplified.

The interoperable VNA provides access to clinicians with a unified multi-specialty imaging and document access, to help them make informed decisions.

  • Robust Solutions for Interoperable Archiving
  • Scalable consolidation of DICOM and non-DICOM data
  • Vendor-neutral, storage agnostic archive services
  • Helps reduce image ownership and migration cost
  • Facilitating interoperability with other systems
  • Centralization of storage infrastructure enables IT efficiency
  • Intelligent Lifecycle Management (ILM)

” Patient care givers can see the entire patient history, even when exams are taken in different facilities, while patients will do fewer duplicate imaging exams, which can potentially reduce their exposure to imaging radiation dose: “fewer exams means less dose”

“It will also mean no more image films and CDs: the patient no longer has to store them at home and remember to bring them to appointments, the hospitals can save money and time, and the clinicians can immediately access everything they need.”

WHAT ROLE DOES YOUR PRIMARY PACS VENDOR PLAY IN YOUR CURRENT ENTERPRISE IMAGING STRATEGY?

“We have cardiology connected to the VNA, and we are now starting to connect the GI lab. We have ultrasounds from the ER and the floors. We are able to plug essentially anything into the VNA. Agfa HealthCare has done a very good job over the years of connecting to just about anything. It doesn’t take days or special coding to make it happen. They did their homework on connectivity up front and are very good at it.”
