March 23, 2017 — Swedish healthcare provider Danderyd Hospital AB has signed a five-year contract with Sectra for the company’s picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and radiology information system (RIS) for radiology and cardiology. This solution comprises a cloud service hosted within the healthcare organization, which will be integrated with Stockholm County Council’s shared archive for medical images. Sectra will be responsible for administrating and maintaining the solution, allowing Danderyd Hospital to focus even more on offering rapid and efficient healthcare.  

Danderyd Hospital is one of Sweden’s largest acute hospitals. The hospital provides acute and specialist treatment to over 440,000 patients from eleven municipalities.

“Sectra’s proven track record of high availability and stable integrations with other systems were important aspects in our choice of vendor. Another key factor is that the solution is delivered through the cloud, which increases efficiency and reliability,” said Jenny Bäcklund, operations manager at the department of radiology at Danderyds sjukhus AB.

Sectra delivers the solution as a complete service, meeting the healthcare providers’ demand for efficiency, scalability and availability around the clock. The solution will be integrated with Stockholm County Council’s shared vendor neutral archive (VNA) for medical images, for which Sectra is also the vendor. This shared archive gives physicians access to a patient’s full radiology imaging history and information regardless of which of the region’s hospitals has previously treated the patient.

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 major investments or the replacement of existing components.
