Proven radiology capabilities grant Sectra order from Mary Washington Healthcare in the US
Linköping, Sweden and Shelton, CT – May 5, 2021 – International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT B) will provide its enterprise imaging solution to Mary Washington Healthcare. They will utilize the platform’s radiology and breast imaging modules as well as the enterprise archive (VNA) to store all radiology images, including cardiology images, throughout the organization. This unified imaging approach will provide all caregivers a full patient overview regardless of their reading location and facilitate collaboration with their contracted radiology group, who also reads on Sectra.
Mary Washington Healthcare, based in Fredericksburg, Virginia, began 121 years ago as an eight-room hospital. Today, it comprises two hospitals, three emergency departments, and over fifty healthcare and wellness facilities.
“We have earned the trust of the radiologists that read for Mary Washington Healthcare, who have been using Sectra in their private practice for the past three years. This common platform will provide synergies between the two organizations and allow for growth through the Sectra One subscription contract,” says Anthony Grise, Vice President of Sales at Sectra, Inc.
The contract, signed in April 2021, provides enterprise imaging as a subscription service (Sectra One). This allows for an efficient means of scaling the system as volumes grow and easy expansion into other specialties, and access to new functionality as it becomes available.
Sectra assists hospitals throughout the world to enhance the efficiency of care, and authorities and defense forces in Europe to protect society’s most sensitive information. Thereby, Sectra contributes to a healthier and safer society. The company was founded in 1978, has its head office in Linköping, Sweden, with direct sales in 19 countries, and operates through partners worldwide. Sales in the 2019/2020 fiscal year totaled SEK 1,661 million. The Sectra share is quoted on the Nasdaq Stockholm exchange. For more information, visit sectra.com.
