Sectra receives another major order for digital radiology in Norway

Sectra receives another major order for digital radiology in Norway Sectra has received an order for one of the world's largest solutions for digital radiology at Mid-Norway Health Region, comprising nine hospitals in central Norway. The order value adds to USD 6 Million and installations begin next year. The order includes Sectra's cutting edge systems for picture archiving and communication (PACS) and patient data administration (RIS) for all nine hospitals in the region. By digitizing the entire radiology operation, images and patient information are made available to all hospitals in the Mid-Norway Health Region, not only to the hospital at which the actual examination was performed. This way, patients can have examinations at the radiology department of their choice, with previous examinations and information still quickly and easily accessible. "Sectra offers an effective and reliable enterprise solution combined with a very high degree of security ensuring extensive patient integrity," says Roald Bergstrøm, project manager from the Norwegian competence center for medical IT. Mid-Norway Health Region is one of the largest healthcare regions in Norway, performing approximately 460,000 radiology examinations annually. The major hospital is the Region hospital of Trondheim. "We are of course very happy to be entrusted with this large and important installation", says Åge Sjåfjell, President at Sectra Norge AS. "It is particularly satisfying to receive this order since Namdal hospital, which is part of the region, has been using Sectra PACS for several years. The order is a proof that Sectra PACS lives up to the high expectations health care providers have when investing in a PACS." Sectra is one of today's major PACS providers with more than 200 PACS installations worldwide. The Swedish based company operates through partners in most of the world, but delivers directly to end customers in Northern Europe. The core business is to deliver top-of-the-line high- availability, robust enterprise PACS for 24/7 operation. In Sweden, which is currently the country with the largest penetration of PACS in the world, Sectra holds a dominant market leadership with more than 60% of all film free installations. The company has its largest number of installed systems in Sweden and the US (through partners), but has also an installed base in Germany, Norway, Finland, UK, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands and the Far East.
