Frequently Asked Questions

If you are new to VNA’s, here’s some info that will help you learn more about vendor-neutral archives and how they fit into an enterprise imaging strategy.

  • How Does a Vendor Neutral Archive Work?
  • Why Consider a Vendor Neutral Archive vs PACS?
What is a Vendor Neutral Archive?

A vendor neutral archive (VNA) is a software system that stores medical images (DICOM) and other medical content (non-DICOM data) in a single enterprise repository. It utilizes technology standards that seamlessly enable the viewing, importing, and exporting of data from across the healthcare enterprise. It helps consolidate images and data from multiple PACS and data repositories into a single archive that enhances how clinicians access patient images and information from across the healthcare system.

How Does a Vendor Neutral Archive Work?

A VNA is a single data repository that can store and transfer medical images and content. It collects and stores data from varying departmental PACS and image capture systems into that data repository. With a clinical viewer, the VNA can be accessed and launched from the EMR to share clinical images to doctors and nurses in context. Once a clinician identifies an image they want to view on a patient, it is selected, an imaging viewer is launched, and the medical image is pulled for viewing from the vendor-neutral archive.

Why Consider a Vendor Neutral Archive vs PACS?

If your healthcare organization has multiple locations, more than one PACS, multiple departmental PACS, thinking about a PACS replacement, then there are some great benefits to a vendor-neutral archive vs PACS archive: eliminate future archive data migrations, minimize the need to buy and maintain storage servers for varying departments, simplify data management and access, enhance security for image access, improve workflow for your staff, and consolidate DICOM & non-DICOM data.
