To begin with, the report outlines how VNA is a step ahead of PACS, since VNAs have the advantage of vendor neutrality over the latter. This means VNAs are free of vendor-imposed restrictions on the format of medical images. In the context of healthcare information technology, vendor neutral archives are a medical imaging technology employed by healthcare professionals for storing images in a standard format and interface, thus enabling medical imaging data to be accessible by means of several picture archiving and communication systems (PACS).

VNAs exhibit a host of advantages over PACS. These include facilitating merging, standardizing, and archiving data and images from several PACS into a solitary, easily accessible, and interoperable database. VNAs are employed to reduce the number of buildings dedicated to individual PACS systems and allow cross-sharing and cross-exchange of documents.
Some of the benefits of VNAs are that they allow access to data from several PACS and to amend PACS without the need for complex data migration techniques. VNAs allow effective control over imagery information. They allow easy integration of new imaging platforms, including ones that are not supplied by the PACS vendor.
On the basis of mode of delivery, the global VNA market is segmented into on-premise VNA, complete cloud-based VNA, and hybrid VNA. Of all, currently, on-premise VNA dominates the market due to its enhanced data control and security features. Nevertheless, cloud-based VNA is expected to supersede it, as it is economical and practically more viable than on-premise solutions.
The component segments of this market are hardware (peripherals, storage devices and network devices, access devices, and servers), software, and services (implementation services, training services, consulting, and post sales and maintenance). On the basis of imaging instrument, X-ray, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, computed tomography, nuclear imaging, and others are the segments of this market.
Top companies that operate in the global VNA and PACS market are Acuo Technologies, Bridgehead Software Inc., Dell Inc., GE Healthcare, Merge Healthcare Inc., Phillips Healthcare, TeraMedica Inc., Agfa Healthcare NV, Carestream Health Inc., EMC Corporation, Fujifilm Corporation, McKesson Corporation, and Siemens Healthcare.
