A picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is a medical imaging technology which provides economical storage and convenient access to images anytime. But when a hospital needs to migrate a PACS vendor, the complete earlier data need to be migrated in the format of the newly procured PACS. It is both time and money consuming. To solve this problem new technique called Vendor Neutral Archiving (VNA) has emerged. This is also a medical imaging technology that stores images in a standard format with a standard interface, but this can be accessed in a vendor neutral manner and hence called Vendor Neutral Archiving (VNA). Some of the key benefits of VNA and PACS are the rapid exchange of information (medical image), clarity and transparency of information, and time and cost efficiency.
The Global VNA and PACS Market is estimated to be valued at USD 2.93 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 4.13 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period from 2016 to 2021. Reduced storage, maintenance, migration and recovery cost of medical image is the key driver of this market. Additionally, government incentives and initiatives in order to promote healthcare IT, and technological advancements, among others are some of the other drivers of this market.
The technology also has certain constraints to overcome, such as lack of properly trained professionals, high cost of initial investments, and complexity of data. Data Integrity and safety is also a key concern. However, the technology has several opportunities as well. The growing importance of healthcare sector in emerging economies, the rising investments in venture capital funds, and the implementation of trends in the medical-IT field holds immense potential for this sector.
The global Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) Market is segmented on the basis of mode of delivery (On-premise Model, Cloud-based Model and Hybrid), Business mode (Enterprise and Departmental), Vendors (Independent and commercial); The Global Picture archiving and communication system (PACS) market is segmented on the basis of component (Imaging modalities (X-ray, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)), Secured Network, Workstations and Archives), Business mode (Enterprise and Departmental), and Delivery mode (mobile based, cloud based, client server based).
