Living Large: The Scalability of VNA #HIMS11

Scalability beyond a department level archive that delivers true data integrity and the capability to change PACS vendors without migrating or converting image data are the two major issues that a VNA addresses. This changes the role of the traditional PACS archive to one of a physician workflow engine. This engine is a transient, easily replaceable component that stores only those images that need to be available for a limited amount of time to the specific department.

  • The traditional PACS becomes an easily replaceable component
  • The VNA becomes the long-term, vendor neutral image manager
  • The VNA becomes the vendor neutral image distribution source for all levels of users
