Experience the Power of One

With this exceptional VNA solutiontransform your isolated departmental imaging and EMR silos into secure, open standards-based information sharing engines.

When you provide a more consistent, unified, and secure view of patient information, you create new opportunities to improve collaboration, boost efficiency, facilitate critical treatment decisions, and lower costs.

The Centricity™ Clinical Archive Solution delivers this crucial single view, with a standards-driven solution that intelligently weaves longitudinal patient data from many different sources and systems together—and then makes it all available through a convenient web-based, zero-footprint viewer that image-enables your entire EMR system.

Differentiating Solution Benefits

Centricity Clinical Archive is different from other “vendor neutral” archives, because it allows you to:

  • Move beyond archives that only support the DICOM standard—with full support for a wide range of interoperability standards, including IHE-XDS, HL7, and IMPI. This makes it possible to share and interact with virtually any enterprise or community archive
  • Overcome the limitations and inconsistencies of multi-vendor PACS systems with advanced tag morphing and Image Lifecycle Management capabilities that optimize image sharing and workflows across different systems and technologies
  • Make patient information more accessible and secure with available cloud-connected disaster recovery, virtual server deployment options, and standardized configurations that help improve reliability.

Transform departmental silos into powerful, information sharing engines

For care providers who need a unified view of patient images and documents to inform critical treatment decisions, Centricity Clinical Archive Solution helps them save time and lower costs. It's a standards-based solution that intelligently weaves together a longitudinal view of patient data from different vendor systems and expands access through a web-based, zero footprint viewer. As a result, Centricity Clinical Archive delivers clinical insight at the point of care helping reduce unnecessary tests and optimize total cost of ownership.

Unlike vendor neutral archives that only support departmental DICOM consolidation, Centricity Clinical Archive helps clinicians streamline enterprise-level and communitywide collaboration through a breadth of interoperability standards, including IHE-XDS, HL7, and EMPI. Its native tag morphing capability can help CIOs overcome limitations and variances of multi-vendor PACS systems to optimize image sharing and workflows. It also offers a choice of virtual server deployment to save data center space, enables disaster recovery by connecting to cloud storage, and enhances reliability with standardized configurations.

Practical Integration of VNA into a Mature Imaging Architecture
Hear Andy Strickland, Director of Imaging Informatics, describe the role of VNA in University of Washington Medical Center's enterprise imaging environment. With the growth of imaging, more attention is being paid to revenue capture and payors are becoming more insistent on documentation. A VNA provides an archive to the enterprise that's easy to use and provides the documentation required for claim generation.

Exploring Optimal VNA Migration Approaches
Few doubt the wisdom of moving to a vendor-neutral archive, but some differ on how best to get there. As a healthcare IT executive your job, of course, is to make any behind-the-curtain changes as seamless to your users as possible. In this webinar we'll discuss pros and cons of different VNA migration approaches so you can consider the best route to execute yours.

White Papers

Bringing meaning to disparate clinical data
Given the wide range of technology options available, it's important for healthcare IT executives to pick the right image management technology and approach for a long-term sustainable solution delivering the desired performance and ROI. This whitepaper explores solutions for multi-layered neutrality, a standards-based framework for unifying medical images and clinical documents across the enterprise and community.

The Role of XDS-Compliant VNA in Promoting Integrated Care
Healthcare providers dealing with the complexity of growing data and data formats, and looking for ways to enable sharing of DICOM and Non DICOM data across the enterprise need the foundation of an XDS compliant Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA). This IDC Health Insights white paper, sponsored by GE Healthcare, provides a detailed analysis on how the adoption of next-generation VNA can support providers in implementing an economically sustainable information management strategy

Case Studies

Creating a better model for medical image management in Canada

Enterprise Imaging in the Large Enterprise
Today, progressive imaging departments manage images from myriad modalities- simplifying the viewing of and centralizing image management across complex health systems to broaden enterprise access and help exams get reimbursed. A large university medical center well-known as an imaging pioneer is using GE Healthcare's Centricity™ PACS and Centricity Clinical Archive solution1 to optimize imaging across the enterprise.

Hospital-wide access to patient documents helps to drive efficiency with Centricity™ Clinical Archive solution
Improved clinician productivity at the Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium. After deploying an XDS-compliant CCA, clinicians reported approximately 30% improvement in productivity as a result of greater visibility to patient data produced across different departments. Moving from silos of data to a single, unified source and gaining secure access in the enterprise resulted in more effective collaboration between care professionals and sped up cross-functional workflows including administering and accounting.

Sharing Clinical Images to Help Improve Quality of Care
Healthcare providers face a variety of clinical and financial challenges. The cost of care is increasing, patients are looking for easy access to their health records, and patient data and images are typically siloed and not easily accessible to clinicians. Quality of care suffers when healthcare professionals cannot easily capture, access, and share patient information.
