Vendor Neutral Architecture (VNA) is the term used to describe healthcare software applications that transmit and store Patient Health Information (PHI) in standardized formats, thus allowing authorized users from other systems to receive and access the patient metadata.
Interface restrictions and high interface expenses are no longer roadblocks in today’s emerging healthcare environment. VNA, FHIR, API’s, and other recent advancements in technology enable software and hardware designers to more easily share data. Healthcare facilities are free to utilize a best of breed blend of software products without the HL7 or point to point interface hassles of the past.
This video explains how Arrendale uses Vendor Neutral Architecture to promote true interoperability, allowing us to interface with disparate EHR’s PACS, RIS and other HIE systems.
