March 14, 2017 — International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra has signed a ten-year contract with Isala Hospital, in the Netherlands. The contract comprises Sectra’s information technology (IT) solution for reviewing diagnostic images. The solution enables physicians at Isala Hospital to access and review medical images from any of its two hospitals, regardless of where current and prior images were taken. The joint solution also enables the two sites to efficiently share resources. 

Isala Hospital’s two facilities are located in the Dutch cities Zwolle and Meppel, and Sectra’s solution will replace the two imaging solutions that are currently used at the two sites. It will handle approximately 400,000 examinations each year.

“With this joint solution from Sectra, information will follow the patient instead of the other way around. Sectra’s proven track record of extremely high system availability was another important aspect for us in the choice of vendor and is also key in delivering efficient healthcare,” said Roel Venema, member of the board of directors at Isala Hospital.  

The solution ordered by Isala Hospital is part of Sectra’s complete enterprise imaging offering which is modular and supports the most image-intense departments — radiology, pathology, cardiology and orthopedics. Being built on the same technical platform, customers can easily extend a departmental solution to create a comprehensive vendor neutral archive (VNA) and enterprise image management solution without major investments or the replacement of existing components.

Sectra’s showcased its Enterprise Image Management solution at the 2017 European Congress of Radiology (ECR), March 2-5 in Vienna, Austria.
