January 31, 2017 — Sectra announced that John Muir Health has purchased an archive to store radiology and cardiology studies in the cloud. All images in the enterprise will be archived in three geographically separate areas with fail-over capabilities. Integration with the Epic EMR (electronic medical record) will allow physicians to access comprehensive patient records through the Sectra Universal Viewer. 

John Muir Health serves patients in the San Francisco East Bay at medical centers located in Concord and Walnut Creek, Calif., as well as outpatient, urgent care and surgery centers. All facilities utilize Sectra PACS (picture archiving and communication system) and, in anticipation of the cloud archive, have also installed Sectra’s Cross-Enterprise Workflow solution to share images with other healthcare institutions in Northern California.

“I’m pleased to be working with Sectra on expanding our image storage in a secure environment. The ability to archive both radiology and cardiology images in the cloud allows our providers to retrieve and share images to better collaborate on and coordinate care for our patients,” said Linda Womack, executive director at John Muir Health. 

Sectra’s complete enterprise imaging offering 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.
