BT signs up Sectra to provide PACS service direct to London hospitals

Sectra : 04 January, 2008  (New Product)
Sectra has signed an agreement with BT to provide Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) products and services to the majority of London’s public hospitals.
BT is the Local Service Provider (LSP) for the NHS London Programme for IT (LPfIT). BT has been providing Sectra’s PACS (a system for handling radiology images electronically) to London trusts via a former Sectra partner since 2004.

Under the agreement, Sectra will, as a subcontractor to BT, begin to assume direct and full responsibility for the support and maintenance of the systems and will also supply additional PACS products.

The 21 London trusts comprise of 25 hospitals that combined perform more than 4,000,000 radiology examinations annually.

“This agreement confirms our ability to provide timely, first-class service and support,” says Torbjorn Kronander, president of Sectra’s medical operations. “To be chosen to take over the service responsibility of such a large group of critical radiology operations is an acknowledgement to our very capable staff.”

In addition to direct sales efforts, Sectra continues to offer direct PACS service and support agreements to any customers that previously purchased Sectra products through partners.
