Sectra supplies PACS solution to two Swedish university hospitals

Sectra : 06 October, 2008  (Application Story)
A Swedish regional public body responsible for health, medical and dental services, Region Skane, has signed a five-year contract with Sectra regarding a PACS digital solution for managing and archiving radiology images.
Sectra will replace existing systems at the university hospitals in Malmo and Lund. The initial order value amounts to SEK 30 million.

“With this new, common digital solution for managing radiology images, we are taking an important step towards more efficient cooperation and use of resources within the radiology operations in our region,” said Hans Stridbeck, regional chief medical officer.

The agreement includes an option to connect the other radiology departments as well as nuclear medicine and cardiology imaging units in the region to the central backbone solution that Sectra is establishing with Region Skane.

”Region Skane’s procurement is the largest in Sweden this year for IT systems for radiology departments. The need for systems that facilitate cooperation and communication is substantial and the holistic approach taken by Region Skane for the IT structure of radiology operations is a model for other care providers,” said Marie Ekstrom, president of Sectra’s medical operations in Scandinavia.

Region Skane, a regional public body responsible for health, medical and dental services, includes ten hospitals that conduct more than 900,000 radiology examinations annually. All the hospitals in the region are already operating with Sectra’s system for managing radiology information (RIS). Region Skane also recently ordered an IT solution, Master Examination Index, from Sectra that enhances the efficiency of radiology cooperation within and outside the region.

Digital management of X-ray images provides several advantages and contributes to more effective and qualitative health care. The use of Sectra’s solution will increase the availability of images and patient information. As a result, it is expected that the productivity and effectiveness of the region’s radiologists will increase substantially.
