VNA and PACS Market
Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) is the medical imaging technology where the documents, images, or any file related to the clinical information are stored in the standard form with a standard interface so that they are accessed in vendor-neutral manner by the other systems. VNA is the further step of picture archiving and communication system (PACS) where it also provides the data storage with convenient access but it is costlier and time-consuming process compared to VNA system due to the migration of data. The advantages with the Global vendor neutral archive (VNA) & PACS Market system include an exchange of the clinical information, transparency, and clarity of information with cost efficiency in less time.
