US orthopedic institute chooses Sectra’s orthopedic PACS

The Rothman Institute, recognized as one of the most prominent orthopedic care centers in the U.S., has selected the medical IT company Sectra as their Orthopedic PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) provider.

Sectra will deliver its enterprise PACS solution to The Rothman Institute at each of their eight locations across the Philadelphia area.

“The Rothman Institute chose Sectra’s Orthopedic PACS solution due to Sectra’s proven architecture and system stability in larger, demanding clinics, and their overall dedication to Orthopedic PACS,” says Jerry Kruc, Director of Information Technology at The Rothman Institute. “We look for every way possible to deliver better patient care and better continuity of care. This system will help us achieve these goals. Another key consideration was Sectra’s advanced digital orthopedic preoperative planning tools and their focus on optimizing the workflow of the orthopedic surgeon,” Jerry Kruc concludes.

The Rothman Institute will be leveraging the full enterprise suite of Sectra’s PACS product, including its orthopedic pre-operative planning tools, integration with The Rothman Institute’s practice management systems, integration with multiple imaging modalities, and deployment of Sectra’s proprietary PACS-Guard™ remote system monitoring capabilities.

“Sectra’s ability to deliver highly functioning, advanced orthopedic PACS solutions continues to be recognized by the top orthopedic clinics in the United States,” says Dr. John Goble, President of Sectra in North America. “Our dedication to improving the efficiency and workflow of the orthopedic surgeon through our advanced digital imaging technology, has created a solid base of long term relationships with the nation’s most prominent orthopedic care facilities,” Dr. Goble adds.

Sectra’s Orthopedic PACS offering will be showcased at the upcoming AAOS 2007 Annual Meeting in San Diego, California, February 12 – 16th. Visit us in Booth #5512.
