Vendor neutral archive (VNA) and picture archiving and communication system (PACS) are regarded as two important markets in the medical image management industry. VNAs enable the acquisition, management, and storage of images while streamlining the communication between multiple vendor PACS. The global VNA market is poised to reach $335 million by 2018, at a healthy double-digit CAGR; whereas, the PACS market is growing at a steady CAGR of 5.8%, to reach $4.3 billion by 2018.

The VNA market is segmented on the basis of its delivery mode, deployment model, and supplier type. In the delivery mode segment, on-premise VNA forms the largest segment of the overall VNA market, as on premise VNAs are perceived to offer better control and secure sharing of data. However, Hybrid VNA will be the fastest growing and consequently a new revenue generating segment for players in this market. Hybrid VNAs allow the cloud to store all the second copies of images, thereby significantly reducing the cost of disaster recovery.

Departmental PACS and enterprise PACS are the two major segments of the PACS market. PACS replacements govern the slow growing departmental PACS market, whereas enterprise PACS is a lucrative market, which is expected to grow at a CAGR 10.8% from 2013 to 2018.

Countries such as Australia, China, and Japan are witnessing nation-wide and state-wide healthcare reforms and changing healthcare IT policies. Owing to this, the Asia-Pacific VNA and PACS market represents significant growth opportunities.

A number of factors such as the presence of favorable government regulations for top markets and the growing demand for standard based storage, disaster recovery, and lifecycle management solutions are propelling the growth of the market for VNAs. Consolidation of patient information by integrating VNAs with electronic health records (EHR) is one of the important trends witnessed in this market. The major factors restricting the growth of this market are data breach incidences, misinterpretation of the VNA concept, and long VNA lifecycles that impact the buying decisions of users.

The consolidated VNA market is marked by intense competition prevailing among PACS vendors, independent software vendors, and infrastructure vendors. These players adopt various strategies, predominantly partnerships, to enhance their market presence. Partnerships allow the introduction of best-of-breed solutions to the market, thereby satisfying the requirements of healthcare organizations for flexible and customized solutions.

Acuo Technologies (U.S.), a part of Perceptive Software, leads the global VNA market with a market share of ~30%. Other key players in the VNA and PACS market include Agfa HealthCare (Belgium), BridgeHead Software (U.K.), Carestream Health (U.S.), Dell, Inc. (U.S.), GE Healthcare (U.K.), Fujifilm Corporation (Japan), Merge Health (U.S.), McKesson Corporation (U.S.), Philips Healthcare (The Netherlands), Siemens Healthcare (Germany), and TeraMedica (U.S.).

Vendor neutral archives are platforms aimed at empowering healthcare organizations to control, manage, store, and consolidate imaging data by streamlining the imaging workflow between PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems), EHRs (Electronic Health Records), and data centers. The global market is estimated to be valued at $165.3 million in 2013 and is expected to reach $335.4 million by 2018, at a healthy CAGR of 15.2%.

Along with the global market for VNA, the PACS market is also given to provide a comparative analysis of both the healthcare information systems. The product lifecycles of each of these systems varies to a very large extent. It is believed that the vendor neutral archives market is positioned in a phase (exponential phase) where the PACS market was around 10 to 15 years ago. The PACS market, on the other hand, is a mature market that is typically characterized by the market players trying to invest in product differentiations and looking for new customer groups.

Based on the delivery mode, the market is categorized into on-premise VNAs, hybrid VNAs, and fully cloud-hosted VNAs. On-premise VNAs dominate the current market in terms of total revenue contribution due to the high preference of this mode over others. This preference is as a result of better data control and high security provided by on-premise VNA solutions. However, owing to the large capital expenditure involved for on-premise VNAs, hybrid VNA solutions that involve a cloud-based component for storage are now capturing the attention of small and medium-sized healthcare providers. Thus, hybrid VNA solutions are slated to grow at a faster rate when compared to on-premise solutions, growing at a CAGR of 18.7% to reach $51.3 million by 2018.

The advantages of vendor neutral archives over  picture archiving and communication system in terms of interoperability, flexibility, and accessibility are propelling the adoption of the VNA technology in the market. Apart from this, favorable and promising government reforms in the healthcare information technology field are also stimulating the market. The major hindrances to the growth of the market are rising incidences of data breaches, complexity of the VNA concept, lack of a proper industry-accepted definition of VNAs, and long VNA lifecycles (that impacts VNA deployment decisions). With this, the market is all set to witness trends such as integration of VNAs with EHRs, employment of cloud computing solutions for VNA products, and a holistic approach for delivering enhanced patient care.

North America is the largest contributor to this market and is valued at $140.3 million in 2013. Through acts such as HITECH (Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability) and ACA (Affordable Care), the U.S. market is expected to witness growing adoptions of EHRs and VNAs and hospital consolidations. The European market is poised to grow at a high double-digit CAGR of 16.6%, with the biggest market being U.K. owing to the presence of huge NHS trusts that purchase VNAs on a very large scale. Australia, China, and Japan are the next promising regions for embracement of this technology due to the government-supported nation-wide healthcare reforms taking place in these regions.

Key companies in this market include Acuo Technologies (U.S.), Agfa HealthCare (Belgium), BridgeHead Software (U.K.), Carestream Health (U.S.), Dell, Inc. (U.S.), GE Healthcare (U.K.), Fujifilm Corporation (Japan), Merge Health (U.S.), McKesson Corporation (U.S.), Philips Healthcare (The Netherlands), Siemens Healthcare (Germany), and TeraMedica (U.S.).
