February 24, 2017 — International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra is launching an extended image sharing solution that enables healthcare providers to digitally share medical images with patients, insurance companies and others in a rapid and secure manner. This is an extension of Sectra's existing solution for sharing and collaboration between various healthcare organizations and systems. It will allow healthcare providers to give patients increased control of their medical data and to let them take a more active role in their healthcare service. 

A growing number of Sectra's 1,700 customers are using Sectra's solution for cross-enterprise sharing and collaboration. The use of the solution makes information exchange much more secure, less time consuming and less expensive than previously used methods such as CDs, according to the company. This leads to an increasing amount of information being shared throughout the healthcare system, and approximately 25 million medical images are already shared every week. In turn, the access to more information gives, for instance, reviewing radiologists and other physicians a much more complete medical history of a patient when making clinical decisions.

The new extension of the image sharing solution enables sharing with others than only healthcare organizations and systems, such as patients and insurance companies, allowing for a more efficient healthcare. It has been developed and tested in close collaboration with Sectra customers.

Sectra's enhanced solution for sharing and collaboration will be showcased at the 2017 European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna, March 2–5. The product extension will be made available to customers during spring 2017.
