The VNA for Your Expanding Healthcare Enterprise
Patient data continues to be one of the greatest clinical assets for healthcare enterprises looking to innovate in areas that advance patient care. Not only do these enterprises rely on internal data to drive care innovation forward, but they also rely on data from external industry sources. In order to make this need for healthcare information sharing a reality, enterprises must first have the proper healthcare IT infrastructure in place.
Today’s hospitals have patient data stored across many departmental systems. While traditional DICOM images generated in radiology and cardiology departments still make up the majority of enterprise images, non-DICOM images obtained from departments such as dermatology, pathology, ophthalmology, and surgery continue to grow at a rapid pace. Unfortunately, these systems often lack healthcare interoperability, which can hinder care innovation from ever reaching its full potential.
A Vendor Neutral Archive, or VNA, facilitates health information exchange by integrating disparate data systems and storing all patient imaging data within a neutral archive.

A VNA system for healthcare is uniquely designed to support this leading industry initiative. Designed for true imaging interoperability, Synapse VNA provides easy-to-manage storage, access to the complete patient imaging record, and links all healthcare IT systems. Synapse VNA seamlessly stores and organizes more than 30 billion imaging objects from more than 1,000 facilities across six continents, and makes them readily accessible.
- Biopharma and Biotech Advancements – The ability to store and share medical images is also increasingly valuable to the advancement of biotech. Synapse VNA for biopharma offers the tools needed to manage, store and segregate images, while making them easily accessible for biotech research and advancement. Enterprises can also use Synapse VNA for clinical trials, where the solution acts as a robust data repository that can quickly deliver the images needed to showcase the efficacy of certain treatments and therapies.
