Large Hospital Network in Ohio Signs Multi-Year PACS Deal

January 12, 2010 - University Hospitals in Ohio serves the needs of patients through an integrated network of hospitals, outpatient centers and primary care physicians, including its primary affiliate, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

To meet the needs of one of the largest healthcare providers and private employers in Northeast Ohio, University Hospitals in Cleveland has selected the IT and medical-technology company Sectra as their PACS provider. Over the course of the five-year agreement, Sectra will deliver PACS products and direct service and support to University Hospitals in Cleveland. University Hospitals will leverage the new PACS, RapidConnect, to provide radiology services across the group of hospitals and outpatient health and surgery centers.

“At University Hospitals, a big part of our ability to deliver excellent radiology services and patient care is dependent upon our commitment to technology,” said Himanshu Pandya, vice president of system radiology at University Hospitals. “We have leveraged the Sectra PACS platform for over five years.”
