    Nader Soltani, President, Sectra Canada Inc
    The recent pandemic has highlighted the importance of being able to access slides remotely and the ability to provide flexibility and resilience in our service. Our consultants will have the ability to report routine and urgent work from home, shortly after it has been issued out of the laboratory. Consultants will be able to work collaboratively on cases from remote locations with simultaneous access to view and annotate patient slides. As a district general hospital, a proportion of our patients are referred to specialist hospitals. Improved data sharing with these specialist centers will improve the turnaround time in the patient’s pathway. Digital pathology has also facilitated the introduction of digital processes within the laboratory, reducing the need for manual transcription and improving patient safety.
    Sarah Rollo, pathology project manager at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust
    This new technology will allow our staff to analyze and share samples remotely, in turn enabling us to further improve the service we provide by making sure our patients receive their test results as quickly as possible. It will also make it easier to work in collaboration with colleagues based at specialist hospitals to obtain second opinions so that patients can begin any treatment they may need promptly. We are pleased to be one of the first trusts in the country to introduce this digital pathology system which will further support our staff to deliver the best possible service.
    Dr Yinka Fashedemi, clinical lead for cellular pathology with East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust
    NHS diagnostic services are undergoing the biggest transformation seen in decades, if not centuries, as disciplines like pathology digitize. East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust and West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust are at the forefront of that journey, and are particularly innovative in their use of cloud computing to ensure their program remains scalable and sustainable. We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to support this transformation that will deliver significant benefits to healthcare professionals and patients.
    Jane Rendall, managing director for Sectra in the UK and Ireland
    It is vital for our customers to be able to trust the equipment they are using for exchanging highly classified information. If this information were to end up in the wrong hands, the consequences could be severe. This order confirms that our solution meets the requirements for securing communications on a high level.
    Jeroen de Muijnck, Managing Director of Sectra Communications BV
    Having our new imaging solution as a fully managed cloud service will allow us to shift the focus of our IT staff. Our team will be relieved of IT management responsibilities, which will be a significant benefit. We also expect to see clinical benefits, such as faster access to new features and new technology. Moving to a scalable cloud solution furthers our ambitions for a consolidated cloud system supporting all hospitals in our ICS (Integrated Care System) and is a vital first step towards realizing our collaboration potential in the north east London.
    Niall Canavan, Director of IT and Systems at Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

I am excited to leverage our experience of providing enterprise imaging in regional and collaborative settings to help Homerton Healthcare achieve clinical benefits, share workloads, and provide their clinicians with modern tools.
    Jane Rendall, Managing Director at Sectra in the UK and Ireland
    Our growth potential is favorable in all operating areas. The need for higher productivity, scalability and access to new technology is growing in all product areas. Our recipe for success is customer satisfaction, which in turn requires happy employees, in that order. Add to this a clear focus on growing markets, reasonable cost control, a clear vision of where we are headed and the perseverance to stay the course. Sectra’s development over the years is a testament to what a strong combination this is.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB

I am confident that together, we can improve patient care through more efficient image review, collaboration, sharing of expertise and implementation of new technology such as AI.
    Fabien Lozach, President of Sectra in France
    One of the future’s major challenges is the threat from quantum computers. This is why it’s extremely important to our customers that Sectra continues strengthening their protection and building security solutions based on quantum secure principles. I am proud of the continued trust we have received from FMV to maintain and develop Sweden’s secure communications capacity.
    Magnus Brege, President of Sectra Communications
    Our customers must be able to exchange classified communication in an efficient way no matter where they are working and still know that only the intended recipients will have access to the information. Being able to support our customers in this challenge is a great honor and a very important mission for us.
    Jeroen de Muijnck, Managing Director of Sectra Communications BV
    The new system will make important diagnostic images instantly available across our trusts to diagnostic reporters and people delivering care. It will also support improved access to imaging across a large parts of South East England, where many other hospitals also use the Sectra PACS.
    Sue Lang, who has worked as program lead for the consortium and radiology transformation program manager for East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust
    Patients can expect their imaging to follow their care journey—whether that’s within our consortium or beyond. For example, cancer patients often move to specialist centers, and others are referred to London hospitals as part of a trauma network and then come back to us, so it is key that we can easily share and access imaging.
    Sue Lang, who has worked as program lead for the consortium and radiology transformation program manager for East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust
    Accurate and timely diagnosis is key to informing appropriate treatment. Trusts in Kent will become better connected with each other and with others in the region, as they modernize diagnostic imaging to ensure the best outcomes for patients and create the best possible working conditions for radiologists and healthcare professionals.
    Jane Rendall, managing director at Sectra in the UK and Ireland
    We look forward to working together with Sectra and getting an imaging system that also allows us to further expand our usage of artificial intelligence as a means of increasing diagnostic security. Imaging is central to our work in diagnosing and treating various diseases for our patients in the Capital Region. We look forward to using the new system and providing our patients with more accurate and efficient care.
    Rasmus Møgelvang, Chief Operating Officer at Rigshospitalet
    We are now seeing more and more healthcare providers choosing a cloud-based solution as a subscription. We are excited to be on this journey together with the Capital Region as they are now both adopting new emerging technology such as AI and reshaping how they access and collaborate around medical images in the whole region to further improve patient care.
    Sune Henriksen, President, Sectra Denmark
    Finding a modern solution to enhance our system performance and radiologist reading efficiency was crucial to our decision. We were also keen to get a solution that supports our future growth and has good AI integration and remote reading capabilities as we expect that to be highly important going forward.
    Dr. Ryan Margau, Chief Radiologist and Medical Director for Medical Imaging at North York General Hospital
    I’m excited to welcome North York General Hospital as the newest member of Sectra Canada’s enterprise imaging community. Sectra’s solution can support NYGH with future growth and make it possible for them to expand and benefit from integrated diagnostics and emerging technology, such as AI or digital pathology.
    Nader Soltani, President of Sectra Canada Inc
    With Sectra’s digital pathology solution, we are able to integrate it with our vendor-neutral archive (VNA). That makes it possible for us to access images from various diagnostic areas, which will provide us with an integrated workflow across departments. It means that we can cooperate better and ultimately provide even better patient care.
    Prof. Dr. F.J (Folkert) van Kemenade, Head of Pathology at Erasmus University Medical Center
    Sectra’s previous experience of digitalization projects for full-scale primary diagnostics within pathology, both in the Netherlands and globally, will be a great asset and we look forward to taking this step together to improve cancer care.
    Prof. Dr. F.J (Folkert) van Kemenade, Head of Pathology at Erasmus University Medical Center
    What we are achieving together with our customers is benefiting millions of patients around the world, improving medical education and helping society’s critical functions with cybersecurity. The best way that we can grow is to continue to satisfy customers who then recommend Sectra to those who are not yet our customers.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    Digital pathology is now a national priority. Many NHS hospitals want to take advantage of this powerful technology to deliver a better service for patients. With NPIC, we hope to provide a proven model, underpinned with advanced technology from Sectra, that will help many more hospitals quickly realize their ambitions and benefit from the groundwork we have already done.
    Professor Darren Treanor, NPIC’s director, and a practising pathologist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
    Our work may have begun with a regional focus, but we are moving to address some significant clinical priorities nationally in areas like paediatrics and sarcoma cancer, where pathology specialists are especially scarce. We have now identified a significantly bigger application for our programme. We have shown how digital pathology can work and we can help the rest of the NHS replicate and scale using our learnings, in order to get pathology digitized to support better patient care.
    Basharat Hussain, deployment director at NPIC
    We have been working with hospitals and regions throughout the UK for years to embrace digital approaches to diagnostics in a way that improves the working lives of staff, and that enables sustainable new ways to deliver services and cope with rising demand. NHS organizations are now embarking on this journey at pace, and have an opportunity to learn from pioneers, such as those in the North of England, who have been committed to making this work, and who are now ready to scale their success.
    Jane Rendall, managing director for Sectra UK and Ireland
    We were looking for a vendor that we can grow with to meet future needs and a solution that supports the healthcare teams with the tools and information needed, available from one application. For example, we will now be able to perform multilingual reporting—for instance, in Dutch and French—making our reading and reporting workflow more efficient. We look forward to working with Sectra to meet our needs and being able to provide the best possible care.
    Dr. Peters, Head of Radiology at AZ Sint-Maria Halle
    Digital pathology is a huge transformation for Northern Ireland. Healthcare professionals work as part of multi-disciplinary teams, so having a range of imaging and information in one system is extremely valuable when it comes to collaboration and enabling more complete diagnostic reporting.
    Nicky Harvey, NIPACS programme manager for Business Services Organisation
    This represents the most significant change in cellular pathology in more than 150 years. The project has delivered a lot for biomedical science and management as we now have a live overview dashboard of all of our cases and reporting status. Granular information across specialities is completely changing our turnaround time analysis, with the potential to set more accurate expectations for clinicians and patients on when they will get results. We can more easily identify and flag routine and urgent cases.
    Robbie Wilson, discipline manager for the Institute of Pathology at the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust
    The synergies offered from a single enterprise imaging platform are substantial and side-by-side access to both radiology and digital pathology images, on the same viewer, is a game-changer in patient care.
    President of Sectra, Inc., Isaac Zaworski
    Receiving this positive feedback from our customers cannot be underestimated. It’s the best proof point that we have hired and retained highly skilled and motivated employees who listen to, and care about our customers. Everyone at Sectra realizes that, in the end, it is patients that benefit from the products and services we provide. This makes us immensely happy and proud.
    Marie Ekström Trägårdh, President of Sectra Imaging IT Solutions
    Each year, thousands of healthcare professionals across the globe take the time to share their voice with KLAS. They know that sharing their perspective helps vendors to improve and helps their peers make better decisions. These conversations are a constant reminder to me of how necessary accurate, honest, and impartial reporting is in the healthcare industry. The Best in KLAS report and the awards it contains set the standard of excellence for software and services firms. Vendors who win the title of Best in KLAS should celebrate and remember that providers now accept only the best from their products and services. The Best in KLAS award serves as a signal to provider and payer organizations that they should expect excellence from the winning vendors.
    Adam Gale, CEO of KLAS
    Some of the biggest benefits will be for patients who move around the region as they are referred to specialist centres at different trusts – whether that’s for cancer care, trauma, vascular medicine, ophthalmology, head and neck, plastics, liver, pancreatic surgery and more.
    Dr Benjamin Salt, clinical lead for the consortium, who also works as a consultant interventional radiologist and deputy chief clinical information officer at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust
    Improved access to imaging will allow us to support a flexible workforce that can deploy across a regional area – that has got to be good for staff, patients, and turnaround times of reports at a time when some hospitals lack capacity. A radiographer at one trust might have capacity to help reduce another hospital’s backlog. With a regionally integrated imaging dataset, that model becomes possible.
    Dr Andrew Carne, a consultant radiologist, clinical lead and chief clinical information officer at Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust
    Diagnostic imaging often underpins important clinical decisions that make a difference to safe and effective patient care. Having access to that imaging in a seamless way is essential. Whether enabling better access to sub-specialist expertise or changing diagnostic models to improve the speed of decisions, the trusts we are working with in Surrey and Sussex have shown a commitment to ensuring the right image is available to be reported at the right time and by the right person, for the benefit of their patients.
    Jane Rendall, managing director at Sectra in the UK and Ireland
    Our subscription service model (Sectra One), allows health systems, such as MUSC Health, to efficiently scale as volumes grow and easily incorporate additional departmental imaging modules into the enterprise. The team at Sectra looks forward to a successful and collaborative relationship between our two organizations.
    Sectra Inc. President, Isaac Zaworski
    The pandemic has accelerated the sale of software as a service (SaaS) and cloud-based solutions, which is contributing to increased recurring revenue. We expect to increasingly deliver our software as cloud-based solutions and are therefore making investments in digitization and organizational development.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    We have worked closely together with the Dutch Ministry of Defense for many years and are very proud of this continued confidence we receive with this new framework agreement. Earlier this year, we also extended our contract, referred to as VECOM, with the Dutch ministries and we are honored to serve both civil and military users to support the exchange of classified information in the Netherlands.
    Jeroen de Muijnck, Managing Director of Sectra Communications BV
    Our customers place strict demands on security, flexibility and mobility. This new order confirms the Norwegian government’s continued confidence and trust in the ability of Sectra’s solution to protect their most sensitive communication.
    Simo Pykälistö, President of Sectra Communications
    We strive to make our customers more efficient with every new release we bring to the market. To achieve this, we listen closely to our users and actively involve them in our development. While many improvements come in the form of new and exciting offerings, we also work diligently with the smaller details—such as reducing everyday pain points to provide a smooth working environment for our end users. At RSNA 2021, we are excited to showcase our latest advancements, with an emphasis on workflow enhancements in the areas of oncology follow-up, breast imaging, musculoskeletal radiology, and cloud-based enterprise imaging.
    Marie Ekström Trägårdh, President of Sectra Imaging IT Solutions
    We have a vision of optimizing the patient-centric diagnostic processes to provide even better patient care, and Sectra’s solution supports that vision with tools and functionality for improving the radiology workflow.
    Spokesperson for the radiology department at the University Hospital Basel

    We are a distributed and growing healthcare provider with the quality of our clinical results as our foremost priority. Given the increasing demand in the healthcare system, we need to give our radiologists tools for efficient diagnosis and peer cooperation to maintain the quality of care. With the solution from Sectra, we will be able to provide excellent patient care regardless of where we meet the patient.
    Renato Correia, Technology and Innovation Executive Director at Unilabs Portugal
    I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to support Unilabs in Portugal in their quest to provide great patient care. The scalability of our solution aligns well with their needs, and it can easily be extended to include more care providers as they continue to grow, or potentially even other imaging needs outside radiology.
    Carlos Cardoso, Managing Director of Sectra in Iberia
    This recognition is the fruit of a collaboration between industry, research and healthcare providers. Sectra IMA is based on ideas developed at the Karolinska Institute and Karolinska University Hospital by a team led by now late professor Lars Weidenhielm. As a result, Sectra can now offer surgeons real clinical value, increase effectiveness in healthcare and thereby contribute to better care for patients.
    Olof Sandberg, Senior research scientist at Sectra
    We reported an unusually strong first quarter. This outcome was primarily due to two customer projects in the US being delivered ahead of schedule. We do not expect this to have a significant effect on the outcome for the fiscal year.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    UMC Utrecht has always had the ambition to be in the forefront of improving patient care by digitizing pathology. The ease-of-use of the Sectra solution combined with its vendor neutrality with regards to scanners, LIS, EMR and AI applications has helped us achieve tangible positive outcomes. We now look forward to working together with Sectra to continue to improve how technology facilitates the daily work for our pathologists and their patients.
    Prof. Paul van Diest, head of the Pathology Department at UMC Utrecht
    Vendor neutrality, workflow support, integrations and the ability to scale are key for reaping the full benefits of digital pathology. Sectra has proven to be a future-proof vendor with a solid focus on customer satisfaction.
