IHS: Dramatic growth expected for VNA study volumes

Dramatic growth in vendor-neutral archive (VNA) study volumes is forecast to drive strong demand for VNA products in the next five years, according to a report by market research firm IHS.

The report, called "Medical Enterprise Data Storage, World 2013," shows that growth will be driven by the migration of PACS images to VNAs.

One particularly high-growth region will be Asia-Pacific, with annual VNA study volume growth estimated at 83.3%, due to legislation and increasing support for interoperable care between departments and healthcare providers in Asia during the next five years, according to IHS.

The specialties of radiology and cardiology have led the way for integration of VNAs into departmental and site-level interoperability, and other departments are set to follow during the next five years, IHS said.
