What are the drivers for Healthcare IT
 Growth of Data
• Size of Studies Increasing
CT – Cath – Path
• Number of Studies Increasing

 Access to Data
• Number of Users Requesting Data
Big data sets moving across the wire
• Complex Business Models
 Association and integrations of healthcare providers
 EMR enablement – images critical


Requirements Are Constantly Changing
Government Mandates Compliance with Current and Future Rulings
Dynamic Vendor Environment
Standards Become More Important

What is Current Situation in Imaging?
Applications Own The Data
• PACS control Data Format and often the Storage
Hardware, OS, and Networks
• PACS Proprietary Format Makes It Difficult To:
o
o
o
o
o
Replace a PACS
Add New Applications To Existing Storage System
Share Data Between Applications
Add New HW or IT Strategies, i.e. Business Continuity
Integrate with HIS, EMR and other IS systems
• Data Migration Is Required When:
Selecting A New Vendor
o Upgrading - Either Replacing Storage or PACS SW
Upgrade
o
• Adds Cost, Reduces Flexibility and Increases Complexity

Vendor Neutral Archiving
11
What a VNA MUST Do
 BREAK the Proprietary Link to YOUR data
 Eliminate Custom Engineering
• Integrate via Configuration
• Must be GUI driven by the customer
 Require full Standards-based Interoperability
 Manage Storage as an Enterprise Resource
 Enable PACS as Applications, Not Storage Systems
 Provide Efficient Access and Administration
Results:



Higher Quality of Service - BC – Dedicated Viewer
Streamlined Operations/Improved Productivity
Effectively Lower TCO In All Areas

Vendor Neutral Archiving
 A True Vendor Neutral Archive solution is a single
set of software tools to centralize all medical
imaging systems into one perpetual repository.

Additional Expectations of a VNA
 Enables a Clinical viewer for the EMR that allows
viewing of all images
• Provide one integration point for images
• Move to a rendering viewer strategy with no image
cache
 End of Migrations
• It is a replacement market in PACS
 Robust support of next generation storage
• Business continuity
• Cloud Hosting
16

Who provides VNA
 Pure Play VNA Vendors
• Software only – smaller - innovative
• No Diagnostic Viewer
 Infrastructure Providers
• Often already providing enterprise storage solution
• Often use Pure Play VNA Vendors for software
 Solution Providers
• Combine software, hardware, network and service
• Offer “one-throat-to-choke”
 PACS Providers
• Send us everything, we can manage it.
• Many deployments, few if any without their PACS
• Will require future migration

Next Generation VNA’s
 Multiple Patient ID’s
• PIX (Patient Identifier Cross Referencing)
 Universal Viewer
• Provide one integration point for images
• Separate the PACS viewer from EMR viewer
• Ensure that the clinical viewer is robust
 XDS Registry and Repository
• XDS provides standards support for management
•
of non-DICOM without locking customers into
vendor proprietary technology
VNA’s should provide simplified Web Services for
ease of non-DICOM compliancy the create XDS
context automatically within the VNA

Develop the Strategy
Build a Plan to Gain Control
• Sever the Proprietary Link Between
Applications (PACS, CPACS) and Storage


Require Applications to Interoperate in a High
Performance, Standards-based Format
Identify PACS as a Valuable Departmental
Workflow Application, NOT Storage Systems
• Decide on an Infrastructure Solution


Storage/Network
Business Continuance Strategy
• Bring DICOM Skills into IT
• Come to Terms With the Inevitable Migration
Commit to Make it Your Last Migration!

The Solution!
There are a number of strategic approaches to building a
Vendor-Neutral Enterprise Archive
Take the “A” out of PACS
•
•
•
•
Migrate to VNA platform BEFORE PACS replacement
Put out RFP for the non-archiving portion of PACS
Connect new PACS directly to VNA
Shut Down Legacy PACS quickly after new PACS is up
