InMedica, a division of IMS Research, issued a report that named Carestream, Rochester, NY, the world’s second largest supplier of vendor-neutral archiving (VNA) solutions. VNA refers to standards-based platforms the health care industry uses to store patient data and medical images in non-proprietary formats that permit information access and exchange.

Carestream’s archiving platform enables secure information sharing across multiple locations. Because Carestream’s system is housed in the cloud, customers can eliminate overheard costs associated with on-site equipment maintenance, upgrades, and replacements. When combined with Carestream’s Vue Motion zero-footprint image viewer, clinicians and authorized users gain secure, real-time access to patient medical images and data.
