Sectra Signs Imaging IT Distribution Agreement With El Seif

November 16, 2017 – International medical imaging information technology (IT) and cybersecurity company Sectra has entered into a partnership with El Seif Development Co. Through this distribution agreement, Sectra strengthens its future business capabilities in Saudi Arabia. Healthcare providers in the region can, through El Seif, gain access to efficient and patient-centered care with Sectra’s imaging IT solutions. Sectra also established a regional service and support company, Sectra Saudi Arabia, to ensure high service quality for existing and new customers in the region.

Saudi Arabia has a population of about 33 million, and the Saudi Arabian government aims to make significant efficiency and quality improvements in the healthcare sector in the coming years. Today, there are about 470 hospitals in the country and 2,300 primary care centers.

The distribution agreement with El Seif includes Sectra’s Enterprise Image Management solutions, comprising PACS (picture archiving and communication system) for imaging-intense departments including radiology, breast imaging, pathology and cardiology, VNA (vendor neutral archive), solutions for sharing and collaborating around medical images and tools for orthopaedic pre-operative planning in 2-D and 3-D.

El Seif Development Company is a leading Saudi healthcare company in the fields of pharmaceuticals and medical systems supply. With more than 37 years of experience in medical diagnostic imaging systems, radiation oncology systems, clinical laboratory diagnostics, digital operating theaters, digital pathology, medical waste and healthcare IT, El Seif has executed a wide range of projects including full hospital turnkey projects throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Sectra’s enterprise imaging portfolio gives healthcare providers a unified strategy for all their imaging needs, enabling improved patient outcome while lowering operational costs. This is delivered through high system availability, a single point of access to all information needed, and by giving clinicians access to the tools they need from a single workstation.

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.
