November 26th, 2018 – SynApps Solutions today announced that it has been included in Gartner’s Market Guide for Vendor Neutral Archives (VNAs), November 2018. Citing a dozen or so key suppliers, the new guide targets healthcare CIOs looking to understand the VNA proposition, market direction and notable vendors.
Gartner defines the vendor-neutral archive as a standards-based, interoperable, patient-centric medical image management platform.
Citing customers including Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital, Croydon University Hospital, Kingston Hospital and Northampton General Hospital, the report describes SynApps’ VNA as a flexible platform supporting a broad base of content types extending to both DICOM and non-DICOM, so clinicians can access all related content.
The SynApps VNA offers increased flexibility because it’s been built on an open, standards-based enterprise content management platform (ECM), so it can be used to securely store and organise all kinds of content – not just medical images. This same flexibility extends to its use as a community engagement platform for a shared care record, opening up access to GPs, CCGs and Local Government.
Speaking of the company’s inclusion in the report, SynApps Solutions’ director of sales and marketing, Chris Brice said, “We are delighted to be recognised alongside major market vendors as a key player in the VNA market. The SynApps VNA has been built on an open, standards-based enterprise content management platform, so it can be used to securely store and organise all kinds of content – not just medical images. It can be integrated with any number of different applications and data sources too, including electronic patient records. This flexibility and openness has served us well and considered a key benefit by our clients.”
