Australia's Largest Public Health System Selects Sectra for Enterprise Imaging IT Solution

May 24, 2018 – Australia’s NSW Health signed a Proof of Concept agreement naming Sectra as the preferred vendor for a large enterprise imaging information technology (IT) solution in New South Wales following a competitive tender process. The goal is to provide 11 NSW Health organizations (10 Local Health Districts and NSW Pathology) with a consolidated imaging IT infrastructure and allow for increased efficiency by seamless sharing of images and information across departments and locations.

NSW Health has clearly articulated the need for a picture archiving communication system (PACS)/radiology information system (RIS) and a shared platform with the ability to collaborate around medical images and information across its multiple Local Health Districts in NSW. The hospitals taking part manage a joint volume of around 3 million imaging exams per year. Procurement of a consolidated PACS/RIS solution will support NSW Health’s aim to deliver world-class integrated clinical care.

“We are happy to confirm that Sectra has been selected as the preferred vendor for the PACS/RIS solution for 10 Local Health Districts and NSW Pathology. The solution was selected by clinicians, radiology subject matter experts and ICT professionals, which ensures that the best available solution will be delivered to support our highly skilled clinical staff in providing excellent patient care. We expect that the solution will also provide significantly improved capability for result notification, scheduling and secure sharing of images across the health system,” said Zoran Bolevich, M.D., chief executive of eHealth NSW and chief information officer for NSW Health.

Subject to successful completion of the Proof of Concept phase, NSW Health plans to sign a 10-year contract with Sectra for the implementation and ongoing support of a PACS/RIS solution for 10 Local Health Districts and NSW Pathology. The potential contract includes substantial deliveries from sub-contractors. The final agreement is subject to a successful finalization of contract terms and conditions.
