    I’m delighted to welcome CHRISTUS Health as a customer. Sectra is providing a solution that will standardize image management, viewing and archiving while allowing for systematic high availability – including planned updates and upgrades.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra, Inc
    When our customers in the healthcare sector become more efficient in their daily work and can thus provide care for more people, or when society’s vulnerability decreases through the use of our data security solutions, then we have also succeeded. I am particularly proud of our employees. It is because of them and the fantastic work they have done that we have such a high level of customer satisfaction.
    Torbjörn Kronander, CEO and President
    As Mayo Clinic continues to lead the transformation of health care delivery and accessibility, the laboratories and pathology practice play an essential role. This system implementation will elevate our pathology practice by enabling digital collaboration among pathologists throughout the Mayo Clinic system and, ultimately, Mayo Clinic Laboratories clients around the world. In the near future, our pathologists will be able to virtually collaborate with colleagues anywhere to provide answers to the most complex pathology cases in order to help our partners deliver the best patient care.
    William Morice, II, M.D., Ph.D., president of Mayo Clinic Laboratories and chair of the department
    We are confident the Sectra digital pathology solution will positively impact patient care by improving access and availability of our patients’ pathology material in a digital form, and facilitating enterprise-wide collaboration and integration of innovative technologies. Our pathologists and allied staff are looking forward to the opportunities that digital pathology will bring in transforming our practice by improving operational efficiency.
    Taofic Mounajjed, M.D., Mayo Clinic pathologist and one of the leaders of the digital pathology initiative
    We look forward to working with Mayo Clinic as we understand the critical need of delivering a solution that will allow pathologists to easily review cases, collaborate, and make primary diagnoses, regardless of their geographic location, all in the best interests of patient care.
    Mikael Anden, president of Sectra, Inc
    Sectra’s solution fits our enterprise imaging strategy, as it can be expanded to include other specialties over time. Its high system availability, integrated reporting functionality and AI workflow integrations were also important criteria in our selection of an imaging vendor. It will give our specialists a fast overview of all analyses, especially those based on imaging diagnostics, from all our medical disciplines and thus improve patient treatment.
    Dominique Schmid, Head of ITM and Member of the Executive Board at St. Claraspital
    When our customers in the healthcare sector become more efficient in their daily work and can thus provide care for more people, or when society’s vulnerability decreases through the use of our data security solutions, then we have also succeeded. It is deeply satisfying that our long-term efforts in creating real value for customers, patients and society at large have enabled us to report the best earnings year in Sectra’s history.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    A numberSeveral of our  projects are extensive, which leads to broad fluctuations between quarters since a significant portion of earnings is recognized in conjunction with services going online and project deliveries. Accordingly, it is important to look more at trends than at the output for an individual quarter when assessing our development. In the coming fiscal year We we expect  a weaker first quarter than normal in the coming fiscal year  and a sharp focus on deploying our services to customers during the second half of the year, particularly during the spring months. This is due in part to natural seasonal variations, when many customers want to come online before the relatively calm summer period, but also to delays in projects and orders because of COVID-19. Over the long term, our new subscription model for software licenses will enable more balance between quarters, but it is believed this will not have a major effect over the next few years.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    Our stable development and positive underlying cash flows and profitability give me every reason to remain optimistic. We have a number of exciting projects in the pipeline and as  well as completely new geographic markets that could eventually become significant. Our possibilities for growth are strong in all operating areas for the foreseeable future, even if COVID-19 will likely mean temporarily dampened demand in certain markets. With our work and investments in the field, and innovation that has the potential to increase customer value, we are creating value for our customers and are thus helping to make society healthier and safer. This customer value is the foundation of our success, and also determines how we successfully create shareholder value and returns for our owners.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    We are honored to see Sanford Health add cardiology into their Sectra solution. We look forward to a continued close partnership as Sanford takes this next step in realizing their enterprise imaging strategy.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra, Inc
    It was important for us to select a vendor with extensive solution replacement experience and a track record of high system availability and customer satisfaction. With Sectra, we’ll gain a partner and a solution that will enable us to achieve increased productivity and support future growth.
    Dr. Ryan Wada, Radiologist at Mayfair Diagnostics
    I’m delighted to welcome Mayfair Diagnostics to our growing customer community in Canada. We are hopeful that our consistently high system uptimes and intuitive workflows will realize efficiencies and support Mayfair in their future growth.
    Kjetil Nilsen, President of Sectra Canada Inc
    Communication is pivotal for an operation in times of crisis. If information is unreliable, it is impossible to lead the operation.
    Spokesperson for a European security authority
    We welcome St. Elizabeth Healthcare to Sectra and look forward to working together in the years to come. Our ability to offer a complete integrated solution with all needed functionality on one platform, created excellent synergies between our organizations.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra, Inc
    The pathology team at HSS was thrilled to partner with Sectra on this initiative to integrate pathology and radiology diagnostics. We believe this advancement will enhance the care we provide our surgical patients, which is what we strive for every day.
    Thomas Bauer, MD, PhD, Pathologist-in-Chief at HSS
    We are excited to see the benefits HSS will experience by incorporating digital pathology into their workflow. The ability for radiologists, pathologists, and surgeons to easily access both the radiology and pathology images should be a game-changer for patient care, especially in complex cancer cases.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra, Inc
    I’m excited that with the FDA approval, we are now able to offer US healthcare providers a digital pathology offering with a proven track-record of use for full-scale primary diagnostics and large volumes. Our solution makes it possible for pathologists across the country to continue their important work from home without the need for a microscope. We look forward to providing uninterrupted pathology reading in these challenging times. This approval is an exciting and important step forward for pathology and cancer care in the US.
    Mikael Anden, President, Sectra Inc
    Pathology is the next huge digitization of healthcare. The use of glass slides limits growth in today’s increasingly digital environment, especially in consolidated health care systems where potential synergies cannot be reached unless pathology is digitized. Our solution opens up new opportunities in the US where we can point to our successes in Europe in large production centers.
    Dr. Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra
    We welcome MetroHealth to Sectra. Our expertise and experience with teaching hospitals and our ability to easily add cardiology and pathology modules to the enterprise imaging system in the future, were great synergies between our organizations.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra, Inc
    It is a relief for us to be able to use the Education Portal given the situation that we now find ourselves in with the spread of COVID-19. The cloud service provides us with the ability to access the clinical cases we use in our teaching, and students are able to continue their studies remotely now that all schools and universities are closed.
    Dr. Rosemarie Heyn, Sapienza University of Rome
    Having a common service for the radiology departments in the region simplifies our everyday operations and enables more efficient diagnostics. Sectra’s experience in delivering similar services was important for us when choosing a vendor.
    Inger Hallin, Head of the Radiology Department, Region Halland
    This partnership is an important component in enabling our customers to easily start using AI technology without the need to procure and integrate themselves.
    Fredrik Häll, Vice President Product Management at Sectra Imaging IT Solutions
    We are growing with satisfied customers, the only sustainable way to attract new customers and retain existing ones. The Imaging IT Solutions operating area reported the greatest increase in sales, but Business Innovation and Secure Communications grew as well. At the same time, new customers entailed major costs during the installation phase, which had a negative impact on Sectra’s finances in the first half of 2019/2020. Major installation projects lead to fluctuations between individual quarters, since a large portion of earnings are reported when installation go live. Installations for several new healthcare customers during the third quarter resulted in increased revenue, pushing the earnings trend in the right direction. As a result, we met our three financial goals.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    When our customers successfully improve their quality of care and become more efficient in their daily work, or increase their cybersecurity with the help of our solutions, then we succeed as well. With a long-term approach based on creating value for customers, patients and society as a whole, we were able to report our strongest third quarter performance to date.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    The digital pathology solution from Sectra is easy to use. Its robustness is crucial since we use it for primary diagnostics and handle large volumes. The digital advantages and the possibilities for integrated diagnostics will enable us to meet future demands and continue to provide the best possible care for our patients.
    Professor Laura Rubbia-Brandt, Head of the Pathology Department at Geneva University Hospital
    We have high-production radiology departments where system availability and efficient workflows are crucial to deliver the quality of care that our patients demand. With Sectra’s solution, we achieve that. Consolidating the four existing solutions will further support efficient collaboration within the consortium, and we are looking forward to continuing to develop our radiology and enterprise imaging together with Sectra.
    Dr Mark Griffiths, Clinical Lead for SWASH
    It is very rewarding to have long-time radiology customers, such as Hillcrest, grow their enterprise imaging platform with Sectra. As we increase our market presence in cardiology, we look to our existing users who appreciate our extraordinary customer service and support.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra, Inc
    When our customers improve their quality of healthcare and become more efficient by using our solution, we have succeeded. Happy users are the ultimate proof of customer satisfaction and it’s an honor to be acknowledged for it.
    Dr. Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra
    Sectra listens. They frequently touch base. Their product is probably the best that we have seen. Our users are highly satisfied. And Sectra is very easy to work with.
    US Director, October 2019
    Sectra’s service is fantastic. They are proactive. Their communication is excellent. The system is extremely user friendly. The interface is very easy to use and is very intuitive. Very little training is needed for new users.
    Canadian Manager, October 2019
    When moving to full-scale digital pathology for primary diagnostics, it’s vital to select a solution that is stable, fast and allows integration with the scanners and LIS of our choice. Sectra’s digital pathology solution meets all these criteria. We already use Sectra’s solution for radiology and know that they are a great vendor to work with.
    Danny Goudkade, Pathologist at Zuyderland MC
    I am delighted to welcome BJC HealthCare into the Sectra family. The Sectra solution was designed to provide a standardized conduit for sharing, reading, and storing images within large delivery networks. I am hopeful BJC will recognize operational and clinical efficiencies in the near term as a result of providing a common system for all of its providers.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra, Inc.
    It was important for us to select a solution that will enable us to meet demands both today and in the future, and we are excited to have Sectra as our radiology imaging vendor.
    Prof. Dr. Handan Guleryuz, Head of Radiology at Dokuz Eylul University Hospital
    With Sectra’s solution, we will get a fast radiology imaging solution, which will allow us to increase efficiency and thus contribute to enhanced patient outcomes.
    Prof. Dr. Suha Sureyya Ozbek, Head of Radiology at Ege University Hospital
    Our customers will need quantum-safe technology and we are at the forefront in this new field. According to the NLNCSA, very few products offer any form of protection against such attacks despite the evident threat posed by quantum computers.
    Simo Pykälistö, President of Sectra Communications
    I am very pleased to welcome Marshfield Clinic as a customer. Sectra’s solution is designed for health systems with geographically dispersed locations like Marshfield. The images will follow the patients and the physicians will have easy access to them, regardless of their physical location.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra in the U.S.
    We are excited to provide orthopaedic surgeons with DePuy Synthes 3D templates in our pre-operative planning solution. We strongly believe that this capability will help surgeons to provide patients with efficient care.
    Gustaf Schwang, General Manager Business Unit Orthopaedic Solutions at Sectra
    We’re working to expand our offering to reach more customers, and major investments for the future are ongoing within the critical infrastructure and government/company security customer segments.
    Simo Pykälistö, President of Sectra’s Secure Communications operating area
    During the last few years, we’ve experienced positive growth with increased synergies, with the medical imaging IT and cybersecurity areas strengthening each other. The Group has stable underlying operations with favorable profitability, long-term customer contracts and a steadily growing share of recurring revenue from growing markets.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    Within the Imaging IT Solutions operating area, the US is currently one of our fastest-growing markets. During the quarter, we received orders from new customers, including the Vanderbilt Medical Center, one of the most famous hospitals in the US. We also completed the installation at Stanford Health Care, a prestigious order that we received one year ago. Sectra’s high levels of customer satisfaction and long-term work are strengthening our position, and the US has now outgrown Sweden as the Group’s largest market in terms of sales.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    As for our security operations, we acquired the assets of the Swedish IT security company Columbitech AB and shares in its US subsidiary during the quarter. The acquisition is in line with our strategy to expand primarily through organic growth, supplemented by acquisitions that strengthen this organic growth. The acquisition will establish Secure Communications in the US, while also strengthening our expertise and complementing the operating area’s cybersecurity products.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    I’m pleased to welcome Vanderbilt Health to our growing customer community. Sectra is providing an imaging solution that will easily scale for growth. Additionally, we have created a customized resident workflow to address their important teaching and research requirements.
    Mikael Anden, President of Sectra, Inc
    Every year, Sectra’s products and services contribute to improved care for millions of patients across the world. At the same time, we are reducing the risk of eavesdropping on society’s most important secrets and of unauthorized access to sensitive infrastructure, such as electricity production and distribution.
    Torbjörn Kronander, CEO and President
    Digital pathology will be an enabler for collaborative working across large geographic areas, streamlining pathology diagnostic decision making, particularly for cancer diagnosis and multidisciplinary team meeting discussions. This represents the biggest and most exciting change to the way Cellular Pathologist work in a generation.
    Dr Paul Barrett, histopathologist at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust and co-clinical lead of the project
    Every year, Sectra’s products and services contribute to improved care for millions of patients across the world. We also help customers reduce the risk of eavesdropping on society’s most important secrets and of unauthorized data access and disruptions to its most sensitive infrastructure.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    We are continuing to grow. Particular focus is being devoted to North America, where we have a very high level of customer satisfaction and major growth potential. Our profit is also being reinvested in new geographic markets and more in-depth product offerings. Our order bookings for 2018/2019 exceeded SEK 2 million. Nearly half of these orders were from new customers. This impressive growth was mainly attributable to major multiyear customer contracts in the Imaging IT Solutions operating area. I’m particularly pleased to report that our growth initiatives and new markets in both medical imaging IT and cybersecurity are beginning to gain momentum. Major long-term customer contracts provide us with greater stability for the coming years, but also result in significant fluctuations between quarters.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    Thanks to a combination of significant growth opportunities in all of our operating areas, stable development, positive underlying cash flows and profit in our core operations, I have every reason to remain optimistic about the future.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    Working close to our customers and supporting them in providing patients with better and more effective care is part of our identity as a company. It means a lot to us when we get the opportunity to be part of a healthcare provider’s digitization journey for so many years as we have with Region Skåne.
    Mats Björnemo, President, Sectra Sweden
    It was important for us to select a dedicated and experienced vendor and with Sectra we’ll have a partner that will enable us to meet demands both today and in the future. The solution’s track record of high system availability and its ease of use will help us achieve increased productivity and improved care of our patients.
    Shira de Bie, Radiologist at Deventer Hospital
    We look forward to supporting Region Syddanmark in their quest to improve patient care with our digital pathology solution and experience from other pioneers in the field. The region is taking an important step towards the global forefront of digital pathology.
