“Hospitals are advocating for VNAs for three reasons. They can’t share images trapped in their various PACS systems. They can’t afford the costly data migrations from one PACS to the next. And they’re tired of being handcuffed to their PACS vendors without practical options for storing, sharing and protecting patient data,” said Ken Rubin, senior vice president of healthcare services for Iron Mountain. “Iron Mountain is ideally suited to deliver vendor neutral archiving because our customers understand we’re truly vendor neutral and they trust the security and reliability of our cloud storage platform. And, when you combine our VNA capabilities with our archiving and back-up cloud services, we can provide customers with an enterprise-wide archiving and back-up solution for not only medical images but for other primary applications in a healthcare organization.”
