SIIM: WILL YOUR VNA BECOME THE FLIP PHONE OF THE FUTURE?”

Date: July 1st, 2016

Laitek’s Behlen offered several tips for ensuring that you implement your VNA the right way:

List your use cases for adopting a VNA, and analyze how the VNA will affect the workflow in each of the clinical areas where it will be used.
Don’t leave PACS out of your VNA planning — and definitely let your existing PACS vendor know what you’re doing.
Figure out how you will handle annotations, especially if they are for non-DICOM images.
Make sure that diagnostic and clinical displays will display the same data in a consistent manner.Be sure your VNA is equipped to handle heavy data inflow, which can be as high as 1 TB a day.
Make sure you have full-read access to all the data in the VNA; get passwords and the contractual rights to passwords. You will never have more leverage than at the beginning of the VNA adoption process.
