May 24, 2024 — International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra’s enterprise imaging solution has been selected by the university hospital Hospital Universidad del Norte, in Colombia. As part of their journey to unify medical imaging across the hospital, they will start by streamlining radiology workflows and enhance reporting efficiency. 

“Our goal is to streamline workflows while fostering seamless collaboration across different specialties. To achieve this, the first step is to acquire a stable and quick solution that enables an integrated environment for all specialties to gain a more streamlined diagnosis process. Moving from the current provider to a world class solution will be beneficial in terms of increased security and clinical standards, among other things. Moreover, the solution from Sectra supports our ambition and strategy as we will be able to easily expand the solution to include pathology, for example, which we are planning on including in the near future,” says Diego Castresana-Díaz, CEO, Hospital Universidad del Norte.

The solution was sold by Sectra’s distribution partner in Colombia, Ajoveco, to Hospital Universidad del Norte located in Soledad, Metropolitan Area of the city Barranquilla in Atlántico. The hospital performs about 60,000 imaging exams a year, serving several cities in the North of Colombia and is in the forefront in terms of research and educational services in the country.

The contract for Sectra’s enterprise imaging solution was signed in the fourth quarter of Sectra’s 2023/2024 fiscal year and the hospital will initially utilize the solution’s radiology module.

Sectra’s enterprise imaging solution provides a unified strategy for all imaging needs while lowering operational costs. The scalable and modular solution, with a VNA at its core, allows healthcare providers to grow from ology to ology and from enterprise to enterprise.
