German hospital increases efficiency using Sectra’s radiology IT solution
St. Marien-Hospital Borken, Germany, which is a member of a hospital network, is digitizing its radiology operation and has signed a five-year agreement with the IT and medical-technology company Sectra.
The order includes Sectra PACS for processing and archiving of digital radiology images, which will be integrated into the hospitals’ RIS and existing IT infrastructure. St. Marien-Hospital performs 75,000 radiology examinations per year and is part of a network of three hospitals, one of which already uses Sectra PACS.
“We looked for a well-proven, future-proof digital solution,” says Sebastian Seyer at St. Marien-Hospital Borken. “Using Sectra’s solution, we gain hospital-wide image and information distribution, thereby increasing the effectiveness of our radiology operation significantly.”
The use of an integrated RIS/PACS solution at the hospital in Borken will increase the availability of images and patient information within the hospital thereby improving patient care and enhancing workflow.
