April 5, 2017 — International medical imaging information technology (IT) and cybersecurity company Sectra recently announced that the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) will install Sectra PACS (picture archiving and communication system) in their healthcare enterprise.

The Sectra solution — integrated with UPHS’s radiology information system, Epic Radiant and the Epic EMR (electronic medical record) — will enable access and sharing of images and information across the entire clinical pathway. Additionally, UPHS and Sectra will enter into a development and research partnership within enterprise diagnostic imaging.

The multi-year agreement includes Sectra PACS for all diagnostic radiology, Sectra Breast Imaging PACS for mammography workflow, 2-D and 3-D orthopedic templating tools, as well as a complete advanced visualization portfolio. The University of Pennsylvania Health System serves patients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the surrounding region through a network of five hospitals and ten multispecialty centers.

Sectra PACS is optimized for high production environments with stability and usability in focus. It is designed to shorten report turnaround times, enhance result distribution workflows, and improve communication between radiology and referring departments.
