Mach7 Technologies (ASX:M7T), a global provider of enterprise imaging solutions, today announced it has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Healthcare Provider VNA/AICA Unstructured Data Platforms for Integrated Care 2016 Vendor Assessment (doc # US41287215, May 2016).
This study focuses on Vendor Neutral and Application-Independent Clinical Archive (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.
Study Highlights Participants, Contenders, Major Players and Leaders
Using detailed surveys and interviews with end-users, vendors, and a review board of IDC experts, an accurate and consistent assessment of each vendor’s characteristics, behavior, and capability was created. Based on the review board’s findings, vendors were characterized as industry Participants, Contenders, Major Players or Leaders.
Judy Hanover, a research director at IDC Health Insights and author of the report stated “This report, which identifies Mach7 Technologies as a Leader in the VNA and AICA Platform space, focused on many variables including functionality and patient-centricity of the product, underlying technology, market knowledge and reach of the vendor, deployment capabilities, value relative to price, and customer references for the product.”
“The next generation of VNA technologies, AICA, has evolved as a strategy to support U.S. healthcare organizations moving to integrated care,” Hanover elaborated. “AICA supports the needs of existing VNA users and systems while offering healthcare providers additional capabilities to address the challenges posed by the exponential growth of unstructured healthcare data and the deepening need for population health management (PHM) and the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) in new business models.”
“We think about enterprise imaging differently and we’re bold in our approach”, said Mach7 CTO Eric Rice. “Our culture of innovation and customer collaboration drives everything that we do. We listen to our customers and create the solutions that solve their business, collaboration and interoperability challenges clearing the way for improved patient care.”
