The definitive VNA checklist

Explore the essential attributes of a mature vendor neutral archive.

A vendor neutral archive (VNA) is a powerful image management system that consolidates imaging information throughout the enterprise into a single, standards-based data repository and seamlessly communicates with all relevant IT systems.

Through true standardized data formatting, a VNA provides medical facilities with all-encompassing ownership of their imaging information, cutting the ties with proprietary archives. It leverages advanced technologies to support the management and sharing of imaging data across the enterprise and beyond, while image-enabling a patient record.

As the centrally managed point of access to all your imaging information, a VNA provides the foundation for an all-inclusive enterprise-wide image management platform based on DICOM, XDS and other emerging standards.
