The offering includes a vendor neutral archiving (VNA) solution, Sectra Open Archive, which enables storage of medical images, film and sound clips from virtually any source, providing a complete medical record. The Sectra Open Archive improves the support for cardiology and endoscopy by enabling storage of file formats such as encapsulated PDFs and digital imaging ad communications in medicine (DICOM) MPEG-4 videos.
Sectra’s cross-enterprise workflow features products and services that facilitate cooperation between hospitals on a point-to-point, regional or even national scale. The solutions enable efficient sharing and collaboration of both workload and competencies, thus facilitating more efficient use of resources, reducing lead times and improving diagnostic quality. The cross-enterprise solutions address the different levels of cooperation healthcare organizations may desire ranging from sharing of medical information to tightly integrated workflows.
