ONRAD Inc. chooses Dicom Systems’ Vendor Neutral Archive

SAN FRANCISCO, CA. Jan 13, 2012. Dicom Systems (www.dcmsys.com), healthcare IT company and teleradiology interoperability expert, is pleased to announce their selection as the Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) vendor of choice by ONRAD, Inc. California-based full service physician-owned Teleradiology group.

Dicom Systems’ VNA works with any existing hardware, and you have the capacity to turn your current storage to your PACS archive at any time, as DCMSYS DICOM and HL7 router is a teleradiology gateway which connects everything together simply and effectively.

The implementation of DCMSYS VNA cuts out all costs beyond the cost of archiving the data, including data sharing.

There are several well-documented reasons as to why it is advisable that healthcare enterprises seek to purchase a VNA from a true VNA company, rather than their PACS vendor. The primary one is thata true VNA organization has their primary focus on interoperability with each individual vendor, including PACS, storage, and EMRs. In many cases this results in making other vendor’s products work better with the VNA than without. Several technological components contribute to this, including: tag morphing; independent policies for distribution storage and retention, and independent storage support. DCMSYS VNA delivers on all of these counts.

Jesse Salen, Chief Technology Officer at ONRAD, explained that, “The ArcStore DICOM Archive VNA is one of the most robust VNAs on the market for the price. It allows us to seamlessly store and archive medical images in away which meets HIPAA guidelines, as well for our own contractual obligations, in an economical and secure way. For us the best part is that the VNA also runs the standard DCMSYS software suite, which allows us to route images between the many facilities that we service and our datacenter, as well as enabling seamless HL7 mapping. We have been very impressed by the amount of functionality which Dicom Systems has been able to squeeze into this little box, as well as its highly competitive price point.”
