IDC Analyst Perspective: Why Do Today's Health Systems Need to Evolve Their Clinical Archiving Models?

The IDC recently released a publication on the evolution of clinical archiving models, heralding the application-independent clinical archive (AICA) as the future of vendor-neutral archives (VNA). With new integrated care models, a growing mobile workforce, a preponderance of merger and acquisition activity, and frequent migration and replacement of clinical applications, it has become imperative for healthcare organizations to build effective workflows to meet the changing needs of their IT environment. Consider these factors when investing in a data solution that supports your organizational goals.
