Sectra Signs Distribution Agreement With Filipino Medical Equipment Provider

November 7, 2017 — International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra recently entered into a partnership with Medical One Corp., a leading provider of medical equipment in the Philippines. Through this distribution agreement, the Philippines healthcare market will gain access to efficient and patient-centered care with Sectra’s solutions.

Marie Ekström Trägårdh, executive vice president of Sectra AB and president of Sectra Imaging IT Solutions, said the agreement will allows Sectra to help the Phillipine healthcare system expand its ability to share and collaborate around medical images and patient information through consolidation and telemedicine initiatives.

The Philippines has approximately 400 regional and university hospitals that take care of more than 100 million habitants. Sixty percent of the radiology medical specialty is now digital. Medical One has more than 340 customers, of which 40 are regional and university hospitals.

The distribution agreement with Medical One includes Sectra’s Enterprise Image Management solutions, comprising picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) for imaging-intense departments, vendor neutral archives (VNA), and solutions for sharing and collaborating around medical images.

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 VNA and enterprise image management solution without any major investment or replacement of existing components. Sectra’s vendor-neutral approach enables customers to read images from virtually any modality and vendor in a single solution, and to integrate with any standards-based surrounding information system.
