VNAs must push medical imaging technology boundaries
This issue of SearchHealthIT's Pulse zeroes in on vendor neutral archives -- a distinctive, medical imaging technology in healthcare designed to allow providers to view images in a standard format.
The market for medical imaging management is huge -- possibly worth almost $6 billion by 2021, and in order to grab their share, vendors must adapt and enhance their products. Our cover story explores the state of the vendor neutral archive (VNA) market and looks at how one children's hospital envisions the future use of its medical imaging technology system.
Following up on that notion comes a 2017 wish list, in which three health IT experts explain what future VNA features they'd like to see. A standards-based approach tops that list. Elsewhere in Pulse, a Gartner analyst helps us debunk some of the myths behind the use of blockchain in healthcare, and find out what steps personal health record vendors need to take for a more successful foray into patient engagement.
