Deaconess Health System Chooses Sectra as Enterprise Imaging Vendor

November 2, 2018 — International medical imaging information technology (IT) and cybersecurity company Sectra will install its enterprise imaging solution, for both radiology and cardiology, throughout Deaconess Health System in Evansville, Ind. Integration between Sectra and the Epic EMR (electronic medical record) will ensure efficient workflow and physician access to all patient images and information within the healthcare system.

“A PACS [picture archiving and communication system] is a lifeline of a health system. Everyday tasks, including importing/exporting patient studies, helping referring physicians easily view images and high-level analysis by radiologists — all are more easily implemented by partnering with a proven company. For us, Sectra is the market leader in PACS, and we are delighted to start our relationship with the best team in PACS performance,” said Ryan Meyer, M.D., chief, Department of Radiology at Deaconess Health System.

Sectra’s enterprise imaging platform provides a unified imaging strategy for high-production environments and will support Deaconess Health System’s patient care at seven hospitals, a freestanding cancer center and 30 additional care sites throughout 26 counties in Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois. The consolidation of all imaging within the health network will provide workload balancing and speed up communication between radiology, cardiology and referring departments.

In addition to Sectra PACS for diagnostic radiology and cardiology, the contract signed in September includes 3-D advanced visualization tools, Sectra Breast Imaging for mammography workflow, teaching file software and Sectra’s universal image viewer.

Sectra’s solutions for enterprise imaging will be showcased at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.
