Region Skåne, one of Sweden’s largest care providers, has signed a six-year agreement with IT and medical technology company Sectra.
The agreement includes development, maintenance and support for the region-wide IT solution for imaging and functional medicine, Sectra PACS. The system is used by, for example, the radiology, nuclear medicine, clinical physiology, endoscopy, dermatology and mammography units to manage and communicate image information. The order value amounts to EURO 12.6 M.
“We have worked together with Sectra since 1997 and are highly satisfied. Through this cooperation, we have achieved substantial progress and efficiency enhancements within the region’s medical image and information management. Sectra’s solution is stable and provides us regional availability and has the functions and performance required to enable us to give our patients high-quality and safe care,” says Peter Leander Senior physician and Regional Chief Medical Officer at Region Skåne.
“Region Skåne is highly proactive in making use of new technology that can enhance the efficiency of the operation and improve care for its patients. Since consolidated image management is an area of major potential for more efficient care, the experience we have garnered from the cooperation with Skåne will benefit our customers throughout the world,” says Ann-Sofi Mikaelsson, President of Sectra Sverige AB.
