Just retired India cricketer V.V.S. Laxman on Monday declined to comment on his relationship with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni but clarified that there was no controversy as has been reported by the media.”There was no controversy at all… I don’t want to speak anything about it,” Laxman said from his Manikonda residence on Monday.It started with Laxman telling the media that he couldn’t get in touch with Dhoni to intimate him about his decision to quit international cricket.This was followed by Dhoni’s admission that he wasn’t invited to Laxman’s house for dinner like some of the other seniors in the team.Laxman was, however, not present at the stadium to watch the first cricket Test between India and New Zealand as his children were unwell.”I wanted to go to the stadium on Saturday but it rained heavily and I had to abort my plan,” Laxman said.”Yesterday, also I had plans to go there. But both my kids — elder son Sarvajith and and daughter Achintya — were down with fever.”But Laxman made it a point to watch the proceedings on television.”I watched the entire match at home. It’s good to see boys doing well and win the match in the series,” Laxman said.

Kamaal R Khan has undeniably been the Khan of all seasons. As he sits down in front of a camera and froths at the mouth because of all the ‘2 rupees people’ he has to deal with and the ‘2 rupees movies’ he has to watch and review and all this while, he passes lewd comments at starlets who cannot get back at him, KRK is quite easily the best representative of the social media we live in today.This is my #BeatPeBooty challenge to my friends @MikaSingh @rahulvaidya23 @yuvikachoudhary pic.twitter.com/FmW6o1qHpy KRK (@kamaalrkhan) August 20, 2016And now he’s back with some killer moves to A Flying Jatt’s Beat Pe Booty, which sees him shake his hips vigorously and tap simultaneously. Kamaal R Khan’s steps are sent from God, and you have to see how much he’s enjoying it. He challenges his friends – Mika Singh, Rahul Vaidya and Yuvika Choudhary.Here’s my #beatpebooty video witth @punitjpathak.Best of luck @iTIGERSHROFF @remodsouza @Asli_Jacqueline bootyshaker pic.twitter.com/sQGqykEIk2 Varun dhawan (@Varun_dvn) August 20, 2016 Varun Dhawan took the challenge rather sportingly as he matched Tiger Shroff’s steps almost perfectly. However, he couldn’t quite match up to KRK’s vigorous hip-shaking. The Deshdrohi actor had previously picked up a public fight with Vikram Bhatt, when he called the Raaz director a pimp and his actress colleague, a prostitute.However, KRK apologised and ‘realised his mistake’ when Vikram Bhatt slapped him with two legal notices. Kamaal R Khan is the quite the colouful character to have around, he’s so unpredictable that he keeps all of us amused most of the time.advertisement
Narendra Damodardas Modi became the 15th Prime Minister of India on May 26, 2014. The popular leader has completed three years, but the excitement, on his being our PM has not died down. He still moves people with his excellent oratory skills and still manages to attract the public wherever he goes.During these three years, the BJP came back in power in Uttar Pradesh in March after a gap of 15 years and also expanded its electoral footprint to the North-East. This in part explains why Prime Minister Narendra Modi remains India’s most popular political leader.As the BJP-led regime reaches its three-year mark, decorated by multiple election victories that have helped consolidate its hold on states, let’s take a look at the top policies implemented by the government in economy and the social sector:1Make in IndiasharesSoon after taking charge, on September 25, 2014, Modi launched the campaign to attract foreign investment and build brand India. The primary goal behind this policy was to make India a global manufacturing hub, by encouraging both multinational as well as domestic companies to manufacture their products within the country. The Foreign Investment Promotion Board, the panel set up in the 1990s to coordinate and approve foreign investments, has been scrapped as part of PM Modi’s efforts to boost funding of local industries from overseas.(Read: Make in India: 10 Indian brands at par with foreign brands )2Swachh Bharat AbhiyansharesThe Prime Minister launched his pet project for a clean India on Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary October 2, 2014.

Liverpool back on top after 2-0 win over Cardiff CityLiverpool defeated Cardiff City with goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner, to reclaim the top spot in the Premier League standings.advertisement Reuters CardiffApril 22, 2019UPDATED: April 22, 2019 09:05 IST James Milner converted from the penalty spot to hand Liverpool a 2-0 win over Cardiff (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSLiverpool defeated Cardiff City 2-0 away on SundayGeorginio Wijnaldum and James Milner scores for LiverpoolThe win helped Liverpool reclaim the top spot in the Premier League standingsLiverpool regained their place at the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 win at Cardiff City on Sunday that restored their two-point lead over Manchester City.Juergen Klopp’s side, who have lost just once in the league all season, have 88 points, a club record in the Premier League era, while City, who beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 on Saturday, are on 86 but have a game in hand.That extra game for City will be played on Wednesday when Pep Guardiola’s side travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United and the champions will make the short trip with the pressure firmly back on.Against a Cardiff side battling for Premier League survival, it was a confident, patient performance from Liverpool who have now enjoyed nine straight wins in all competitions.”It was prepared to be a proper banana skin and we knew that, the boys were unbelievable. It was clear, difficult for all of us,” said Klopp.”The boys try really with all they have, we only speak about the things we have to do.””Their attitude is outstanding and it’s a tough season but a very positive one as well,” added the German.Cardiff defended deep and in numbers and limited Liverpool’s opportunities but Roberto Firmino missed a great chance to open the scoring in the 22nd minute, finding himself one-on-one with keeper Neil Etheridge but lifting the ball over the bar.Etheridge was then quick off his line to save with his legs from Mohamed Salah while Cardiff offered a warning when Alisson Becker tipped over Oumar Niasse’s close-range effort.advertisementAfter an intense spell of pressure following the interval, Georginio Wijnaldum broke the deadlock for Liverpool in fine style with a first-time strike from a clever short corner from Trent Alexander-Arnold.Sean Morrison then missed a golden opportunity for relegation-threatened Cardiff to equalise, making a hash of a header when he had an open goal at his mercy after Alisson misjudged a cross.Late in the game, Morrison was judged to have pulled down Mohamed Salah in the box and substitute James Milner converted the 81st-minute penalty to make sure of the crucial three points for Klopp’s side.Liverpool’s ability to avoid slip-ups against lowly opposition has been a key part of their season – they have taken 52 points from a possible 54 against teams in the bottom half of the table.Cardiff remain in 18th place, the final relegation spot, and are three points behind 17th placed Brighton & Hove Albion, having played a game more.Also Read | Manchester United suffer 5th straight away defeat with 4-0 hammering from EvertonFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Mumbai: Actor Ananya Pandey who debuted in Bollywood with producer Karan Johar’s Student of the Year 2 says that even though her life has changed after the movie, she tries to “behave like a normal teenager”. “Life has definitely changed after I did Student of the Year 2. Now, people recognise me more. It feels you have now earned a name. But I try to behave as much normal as I can. I try to be a normal teenager which I am. I hang out with my friends and my family. I try to do as many normal things as I can,” said the 20-year-old actor. Ananya, daughter of popular comic actor Chunky Pandey, says she was lucky to be born in the family of an actor as it made her journey in Bollywood much easier. She, however, believes that though being a star kid made her entry into films easy, nobody will invest in someone who is not worthy of it.
OTTAWA, Ont. — There is a call today for a global ban on the mining and use of all forms of asbestos.It’s coming from a group of more than 150 international and Canadian organizations and individual scientists from 20 countries.The argument in favour of an international ban comes after last month’s announcement by the Quebec government it would lend $58-million to help reopen the Jeffrey Mine in the town of Asbestos.The industry in Quebec appeared on the verge of collapse but the loan and private investment could keep production and exports going for another 20 years.Asbestos opponents are urging major producers — Brazil, Canada, Kazakhstan and Russia — to put an end to mining and exports and help communities make the transition to a different industry.The groups say in a joint statement that countries should tell citizens about the health hazards of dealing with asbestos. Activists argue that asbestos is linked to cancer.Industry proponents have insisted asbestos can be used safely if it is handled properly.The last two remaining asbestos facilities in Canada — including Jeffrey Mine — are in Quebec. The other mine is also shuttered but proponents hope it will be re-opened. [np-related]

Four-hundred and fifty people have signed up, and of that about 50 have officially registered.Asked if he thinks that online auctions will put more pressure on an already heated property market by encouraging outside cash buyers, Hoban said:It may be easier for people overseas to bid, but they’ll find it very hard to be successful. Irish buyers have become increasingly competitive, and a lot of overseas bidding is outbid.“Two years ago, 20% of Irish property was bought from overseas but now that figure is just 6%.So how does it work?”A registered user must submit a pre-authorised payment of €5,000 by credit card – known as the “Bidder Security.”This is frozen on the potential buyer’s card and will only be taken if they’re a winning bidder.The bidding will close in 15 minute intervals tomorrow, during which period all bids will be openly logged and displayed.Once the timer reaches zero for each lot, the highest bidder wins, subject to the reserve price having been exceeded.(Any bid within one minute of closing automatically adds two minutes to the timer, allowing further counter bidding.)A PDF Contract for Sale is e-mailed to the buyer, seller and their solicitors upon sale and is digitally signed on behalf of the vendor and the purchaser.The digital signatures allow the transactions to be legally binding.The balance of 10% deposit (less €5,000) is then due within 48 hours.Hoban added, “We hope that the convenience will further the reach to our potential audience, with our catalogue at their fingertips from anywhere in Ireland or the world.”Read: There’s more money flowing into commercial property than at the height of the boom>Read: From €10k houses to an entire shopping centre: A look at today’s Allsop auction properties> BIDDING FOR THE world’s first ever online-only property auction opens today.It starts at 10am this morning and will close 24 hours later.The online-only auction features 22 properties around Ireland.Allsop space, the auctioneers holding the auction, says that interest is building from potential buyers based on online registrations.Speaking to TheJournal.ie, Director of Auctions at Allsop Space, Robert Hoban, said:
Une nécropole romaine découverte en Seine-Maritime Une nécropole romaine contenant plusieurs milliers de tombes vient d’être découverte à Lillebonne en Seine-Maritime. Cette découverte confirme l’importance de la cité portuaire pendant l’Antiquité. La découverte des sépultures de Lillebonne, en Seine-Maritime, a eu lieu alors que la mairie avait demandé aux chercheurs de l’Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives (Inrap) d’effectuer un diagnostic préalable à la constructions de jardins ouvriers, rapporte l’AFP.

The Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) may hand out more interest on provident fund (PF) deposits for the current fiscal, compared to the 8.75% offered in the past two years.The retirement body is expected to give 9% for it’s over-5-crore subscribers for the 2015-16 fiscal.”The income projection of Rs 34,844.42 crore for the current fiscal is expected to be revised upward. Thus, the body can provide 9% rate of interest on PF deposits for 2015-16,” EPFO trustee and Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh Secretary P J Banasure told Press Trust of India.Earlier this week, the Employees Provident Fund Organisation’s (EPFO) Finance Audit and Investment committee (FAIC) had recommended 8.95% interest on PF deposits for the current fiscal year.”If the EPFO provides 8.95% interest rate on PF deposits for 2015-16, it will leave a surplus of Rs 91 crore as per income projections worked out in September last year. But the FAIC will meet again later this month to vet the latest income estimate which is likely to be revised upward,” said Banasure, who is also a member of the FAIC.Offering 9% interest on deposits will lead to a deficit of Rs 100 crore for the EPFO, according to its income projections made in September last year.”We are expecting that there will be a surplus of Rs 100 crore on providing 9% rate of interest on PF deposits when EPFO will work out the latest estimates. The FAIC can change its recommendation in the next meeting and suggest 9% interest rate for 2015-16,” he said.However, the proposal to pay 9% interest needs to be approved by the Central Board of Trustees (CBT) before the Finance Ministry notifies it.Recently, the Finance Ministry indicated it would cut interest rates on small savings like public provident fund, taking into account the rate cuts announced by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).
Nawaz Sharif. Photo: AFPPakistan’s Supreme Court on Friday disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from public office over long-running corruption allegations, a decision that ousts him from the premiership for the third time in a chequered political career.”He is disqualified as a member of the parliament so he has ceased to be holding the office of Prime Minister,” Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan told the packed courtroom in Islamabad.As the verdict was announced opposition supporters erupted in applause, rushing into the street chanting slogans and handing out sweets in celebration.The decision brings to an unceremonious end Sharif’s third term in power, roughly one year before scheduled general elections which would have seen him become the first Pakistani prime minister to complete a full five-year term.Most have seen their tenures cut short by the powerful military or interference from the Supreme Court. Others have been ousted by their own party, forced to resign — or been assassinated.The court also asked the national anti-corruption bureau to launch a further probe into the allegations against Sharif, which stem from the Panama Papers leak last year linking the premier’s family to lucrative offshore businesses.The bureau has the power to arrest and bring criminal charges against those it investigates.The Supreme Court had in April declared there was “insufficient evidence” to oust Sharif over the graft allegations engulfing his family, and ordered an investigation team to probe the matter.The team of civilian and military investigators found there was a “significant disparity” between the Sharif family’s income and lifestyle in its report, which was released to the public and submitted to the court earlier this month.The findings sparked an uproar, including the claim that documents regarding Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz and her link to some of the family’s London properties were “falsified” — dated 2006, but typed in Microsoft’s Calibri font, which was not released for commercial use until 2007.The Sharifs and their allies have consistently and noisily rejected the claims against them, with his ruling PML-N party this month dismissing the investigation team’s report as “trash”.There was no immediate reaction from Sharif or his family to the court ruling Friday.The push against Sharif has been spearheaded by cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan and his Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf party.”Today (the) Supreme Court has made a new history. I want to thank (the) judges on behalf of the people of Pakistan because they made the impossible possible,” PTI vice president Shah Mehmood Qureshi told reporters outside the court.The ruling PML-N party currently has no clear successor in place.Sharif’s daughter Maryam is his presumptive political heir but does not hold public office, while his brother Shahbaz Sharif, the current chief minister of Punjab province, holds only a provincial seat.’Moral authority’The controversy erupted last year with the publication of 11.5 million secret documents from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca documenting the offshore dealings of many of the world’s rich and powerful.Three of Sharif’s four children — Maryam and his sons Hasan and Hussein — were implicated in the papers.At the heart of the case is the legitimacy of the funds used by the Sharif family to purchase several high-end London properties via offshore companies.The PML-N insists the wealth was acquired legally, through Sharif family businesses in Pakistan and the Gulf.Bribery and other forms of graft are endemic in Pakistan, with the country coming in 116th place out of 176 countries ranked according to corruption levels by Transparency International in 2017.Sharif has been ousted by graft allegations once before, when he was sacked by the country’s then-president during the first of his three terms as prime minister in 1993.There is precedent for the Supreme Court to oust a sitting prime minister: in 2012 then-premier Yousaf Raza Gilani was disqualified over contempt of court charges for refusing to reopen a corruption case against president Asif Ali Zardari.Sharif has not yet completed a term as prime minister, having been removed in his second term by a military coup in 1999.His ousting comes ahead of general elections due to be held by next year, and as the civilian government appears to have reached an uneasy detente with the military, which has ruled Pakistan for half of its existence.

Credit: Kelvinsong/Wikipeida Earth scientists have concluded that approximately 85 percent of the Earth’s core is made of iron while nickel makes up an additional 10 percent—but the final 5 percent has been a bit of a mystery. In this new effort, the researchers conducted lab experiments that gave results suggesting that the final ingredient is silicon.To figure out which elements exist in the Earth’s core, researchers have been building virtual Earths in labs and then subjecting them to real-life conditions such as heat and pressure. For now, this is the only approach possible because the core is far too deep to dig a hole and send a probe down—it is approximately 3,000 km below the surface and is a relatively small target—about the size of Pluto. Experiments have consisted of building cores containing different materials, subjecting them to heat and pressure and then sending seismic waves through them to compare with real ones sent through the real core. Silicon has been considered as a possibility before due to the ease with which it bonds with metals, but it had not been thoroughly tested. The researchers in Japan heated their iron, nickel and silicon core to 6,000C° and applied pressure 3.6 million times that at the surface of the planet. Seismic analysis indicated the mixture they had created matched that at the real Earth’s core, strongly suggesting they had found the missing element.As the researchers note, understanding the true makeup of our planet, including its core, may help to better understand its history. Learning about the materials that make up the core today offers a way to learn more about what the interior parts of the planet may have been like billions of years ago, such as when the core separated from rockier material around it. The results of the new effort also suggest that oxygen is likely not very abundant in the core, which some in the field have suggested was a real possibility. Researchers offer ‘proof’ that oxygen is the only light element in the Earth’s core More information: MR22A-01: Sound velocity of iron-light element compounds and the chemical structure of the inner core, AGU Fall Meeting 2016, agu.confex.com/agu/fm16/meetin … app.cgi/Paper/153611AbstractThe light elements in the core could constrain the conditions of accretion, subsequent magma ocean, and core formation stages of the Earth. There are several studies for sound velocity measurements of the iron-light elements alloys. However, the measurements are not enough to constrain the light element abundance in the core tightly at present due to inter-laboratory inconsistencies using different methods which are originated from the difficulties to make such measurements under the extreme conditions. We measured the sound velocity of iron alloy compounds at high pressure and temperature relevant to the Earth’s core using double-sided laser heating of a DAC combined with inelastic X-ray scattering at SPring-8.We measured the compressional velocity of hcp-Fe up to 166 GPa and 3000 K, and derived a clear temperature dependence of the Birch’s law for hcp-Fe. We measured the compressional velocity of Fe0.89Si0.11 alloy and Fe3C at high pressure and temperature, and we could not detect temperature dependency in Birch’s law in these compounds. Additionally, we measured the sound velocity of Fe3S, Fe0.83Ni0.09Si0.08 alloy, and FeH at high pressure. Combining our new data set which showed remarkable differences from previous data on the sound velocity, we present a model of the chemical structure of the inner core. The outer core composition was also estimated based on partitioning behaviors of these light elements between solid and liquid iron alloys under the core conditions.

Museum says mummy was Peruvian girl who lived centuries ago The archaeologists reported that along with the remains, there was a belt with beads and a buckle made of jet, a vase resembling those used by Huns of the period, and a box made of birch wood that held a small mirror. Other assorted ceramic utensils were also found. Initial examination of the mummified remains revealed patches of skin, soft tissue and cloth remnants that appeared to be made of silk.The researchers noted that the area where the grave was found is normally underwater, but this year, the reservoir created by the dam was abnormally low, exposing ground that had been submerged since the 1980s. As the researchers were exploring the exposed land last month, they came upon the tomb.The researchers suggest the clothing and materials in the grave indicate the girl was likely a nomadic Hun—likely one of high regard. She could have been part of the nobility. They also note that the vase contained what appeared to be a funeral meal and that a sack of pine nuts had been placed on her chest. The Huns, the researchers note, lived in parts of what is now modern China and Siberia almost 2000 years ago. They were migratory, and prior studies have shown they tended to mix with local people.The remains and other artifacts have been removed from the gravesite and have been transported to a location suitable for studying them. The researchers report that a lot of work is required to learn more about the girl’s origins and how she came to be mummified. They will also be working to understand how her remains and other artifacts were able to withstand being submerged under the reservoir for over 30 years.

If your enterprise is similar to most current hospital health information technology (HIT) architecture, you have clinical/data silos everywhere. This is nothing to be ashamed of; you are normal. But in the coming age of healthcare delivery, silos must be replaced with interoperability. One key to interoperability will be an integrated medical image archive. While most consider image archiving as specific to cardiology or radiology, the fact is you have imaging elsewhere in your enterprise whether you know it or not. Determining the best archive solution is dependent on the size and scope of your imaging needs across the enterprise.Most likely, your institution has heard of, and may even be in the process of, procuring a vendor neutral archive (VNA). The VNA market is in the emerging stages of combining a multitude of technologies into a single unified platform. This platform typically consists of a hierarchical storage manager, intelligent archive feed by HL7 interfaces, health information exchange (HIE) integration engine with XDS-i conversion, DICOM archive, non-DICOM storage archive, DICOM normalization tools often seen in the picture archiving and communications system (PACS) neutral archive market and an encompassing univiewer that can display all stored data types.With so many features and variations, it is hard not to simply run out and procure the nearest vendor. Beware, this is akin to running to the car dealer without any plan or requirements other than, “I need a car for the next 10 years.” Your best strategy is to understand and calculate your enterprise needs now and your vision for the future prior to choosing a VNA vendor.There are three types of VNA products now available in the archive market: Full VNA, hybrid VNA and PACS neutral archive (PNA). A fourth category might include the vendors touting their PACS solution as a VNA. As a result, confusion is rampant in the community, since the definition of a VNA depends on which vendor you speak with. Vendor selection in this market will have a significant impact on the clinical and technical functionality of your archive. Thus, you must first understand what defines the three categories of VNA.Full VNAA full VNA is not only an all-in-one solution, but also offers the ability to fully utilize non-DICOM objects without manipulation or intervention. A full VNA provides an embedded and supported universal viewer that is capable of displaying DICOM and non-DICOM objects within a single application without wrapping or encapsulating the object simply to archive the object and make it useful with current technology.Full VNAs typically offer the following abilities:• WebServices for header/database index publication• Certified hardware virtualization• Hardware-agnostic implementation option• ILM (image lifecycle management)• Routing/prefetch rules• Data normalization tools• Native DICOM and non-DICOM object archival in native format• Single patient record across all disciplines• Single integration point for image enablement for all archiving clinical systems• Unified fully integrated image viewer for DICOM and non-DICOM objects• Ability to utilize best-of-breed DICOM viewers from a third partyPACS and cardiovascular information systems (CVIS) are by default architected to archive image data in perpetuity. With many facilities reaching 50+TB, the data center has become a graveyard of images that haven’t been accessed in years.A full VNA will provide you with a one-stop shop for all archiving needs and dissemination of all image data to electronic medical record (EMR) and health information exchange (HIE) exchanges by default. They will provide viewer support or access to the data if a third-party viewer is warranted by your analysis. A full VNA will archive all data types.Hybrid VNAA hybrid VNA offers the basic core infrastructure of a full VNA but often does not include a univiewer by default that ties the entire package together. These abilities typically include:• Web services for header/database index publication• Certified hardware virtualization• Hardware-agnostic implementation option• ILM (image lifecycle management)• Routing/prefetch rules• Data normalization tools• Native DICOM and non-DICOM object archival in native format• Single patient record across all disciplines• Ability to utilize best-of-breed DICOM viewers from a third partyA hybrid VNA is lacking in a unified viewer. It allows you, the customer, to choose best-of-breed when selecting a viewer for your enterprise. It provides the viewer a direct access link (DAL) to the object storage location.Hybrids are capable of storing non-DICOM objects, but typically by default do not provide an ability to utilize the non-DICOM object unless the chosen third-party viewer is capable of displaying that file type. Consider this a finger-pointing session between the clinical application system and the third-party unified viewer. The VNA vendor will simply provide storage and access to the object.PACS Neutral Archive (PNA)PNAs are simply third-party DICOM archives that are typically rebranded by existing storage vendors with an inbound interface to keep the records in sync with the enterprise. They offer the ability to store and archive images from multiple DICOM systems, but usually lack the ability to store non-DICOM data without wrapping or encapsulation. They often also usually lack image lifecycle management (ILM) and Web services to publish the data to an HIE. There are many vendors in this space touting VNA.It is important to understand that many archiving systems use proprietary objects or TIFF formats for image and data storage. This category of VNA vendors recommends these objects be wrapped or encapsulated in a DICOM wrapper. This renders the object unusable by the clinical archiving system. It solves the ability to disseminate the object, but destroys the ability for the archiving system to utilize it, because it lacks the ability to retrieve that object once stored.Define Your NeedEvaluating your enterprise needs is a difficult and sometimes overwhelming endeavor, especially when you venture into the non-DICOM world. For radiology and cardiology, DICOM is a format we are all very familiar with. However, DICOM is not typically the standard outside of these two imaging service lines.Non-DICOM will bring with it very interesting integration storage methods and different retention and compression rules not typical in the PACS environment. It is wise to bring in an expert who has the ability to look at your enterprise with new eyes and your strategic roadmap, while providing you with a list of requirements your organization needs for a unified storage platform. Once you have your requirements, you will know what type of VNA to entertain.The VNA analysis will uncover what future system dataflow and workflow would look like for all clinical imaging departments. Wrapping or encapsulation might make sense, but if that data is irretrievable by the clinical archiving system, it disrupts the clinical workflow. Other questions to consider include:• How does your enterprise plan to integrate into an HIE or unify all imaging to enable a comprehensive patient record for your EMR?• Do you plan to build an EMR API integration for each clinical system with a unique viewer?• Do you plan to utilize your PACS and force radiology workflow onto the enterprise?• Does your enterprise need the capability to intelligently utilize storage while having all image data adhere to your disaster recovery plan?Most facilities plan carefully for a PACS installation, then allow IT to decide on an archive strategy. A VNA impacts clinical workflow, and the clinical side of the house must validate dataflow and workflow of the system-of-choice.A VNA will and can touch every clinical imaging system and acquisition device in your enterprise. The planning for a VNA must be comprehensive, and you’d better get it right. Your VNA will likely be around longer than any other clinical archiving system you currently have today.Jonathan Shoemaker is a frequent speaker and writer on healthcare technology topics and VNA.
