US orthopedic group in New York to improve patient care with solution from Sectra
Seven Hudson Valley locations of Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County (OADC) are now using PACS from the medical imaging IT company Sectra. This solution will assist the group to improve patient care by providing specialized orthopedic tools integrated directly into the PACS workflow.
“Sectra PACS has exceeded our expectations. The physicians have transitioned seamlessly with no need to adjust patient schedules for training. Sectra worked closely with our PACS Administrator, John Resch, and IT Director, Rob Wheeler, to ensure a smooth go-live and robust network for years to come,” says Managing Partner, William Colman, MD.
With its specialized templating tools and vast library of digital templates, Sectra PACS will allow OADC’s orthopedic surgeons to perform all their imaging, pre-operative planning, and patient follow-up on one system.
“Our capabilities of image viewing, templating, and surgical planning provide a complete solution for an orthopedic group,” says Sectra President of North America, Mikael Anden.
