How can you make your VNA better? Add cloud computing

With a vendor neutral archiving (VNA) system, healthcare providers may think they have it all - a reliable way to manage, store, retrieve and search for clinical images and patient information. However, with cloud computing, they could have even more.

This technology offers convenient, readily accessible information to practitioners within the same network through an electronic medical record system. It involves minimal management, which allows for easier sharing of clinical archiving data, according to the U.S. General Services Administration.

In addition, for some providers in specific specialities, such as radiology, cloud computing allows them to access images, utilize tools and resources, and write up reports wherever they are throughout the day, as reported by Healthcare IT News. Gone is the era when doctors and nurses had to sit at one particular desk to document their work.

Moreover, cloud computing is conducive to hospitals of any size, the news source reported. Large medical facilities often require a big information framework that can handle lots of data. Installing a cloud system could help to manage all that content. Even small facilities could benefit from the technology when working toward clinical quality control. In the end, it could save them time and money.
