A List of the Great Courses Currently Available at VNAit.org

  • Learn how a VNA solution will migrate Silo’d PACS to an Enterprise Image Archive, enable healthcare institutions to take control of the images and the storage management, and drive a universal clinical viewer. Without an enterprise imaging plan, healthcare institutions will face a data management problem and costly data migrations. More important, the physicians need a universal way to access and view the images, securely, anywhere and at anytime.
  • The term Vendor Neutral ARCHIVE is used by many software vendors, including PACS vendors, to identify the archiving function of their product. This is the component used to reliably manage, store, retrieve, and query medical images and related information. Unfortunately, there is no official definition of the functionality of a VNA. A useful definition of the comprehensive Vendor Neutral ARCHITECTURE is that it copes with medical and consumer standards while being agnostic to database, operating system, image generating device and infrastructure. VNA offerings vary from vendor to vendor. The result is confusion among users due to the lack of a comparison of VNA functionality and features.
  • This course proposes a definition of a VNA that identifies different architecture levels and their specific functionality. The various components that make up the core of a healthcare image and information management system will be discussed. This course also provides the key advantages of a VNA compared to a proprietary solution.
  • In this course we will define what DICOM is and how it has evolved. We will also explore how DICOM is used daily in the healthcare realm. We will also Identify the 6 aspects of DICOM and discuss the standard parts of DICOM, DICOM Terminology & Entity Relationships, SOP (Service Object Pair) Class and IOD’s (Information Object Definitions).
