The U.S. healthcare provider information technology (IT) market has experienced extreme growth and change since the introduction of accountable and value-based care, following the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010. As providers seek to optimize their operations under value-based care business models, the need to rationalize storage for medical images and accommodate the growing variety and volume of unstructured content being created in new, network-based healthcare organizations (HCOs) has become acute. The growing need for management of unstructured content — whether the requirements are for traditional archives or real-time access repositories, or a combination of these capabilities — has led to increased adoption of vendor-neutral archives (VNAs) to manage DICOM files as well as a second generation of more patient-centric technology, the application-independent clinical archive (AICA). This IDC MarketScape focuses on VNA and AICA platforms that allow providers to manage and provide access to disparate types of unstructured content, among multiple departments, across the entire integrated delivery network (IDN), and between affiliated providers in the community.

    Jonas, don' you think that the architecture adopted to address traceability regulation could easily be replaced by IOT solutions. Main drivers: less implementation costs, no packaging line performance decrease, no additional cost for aggregation, and of course interconnexion with smart phone app.
