    This program will push the boundaries of cancer research and how we work. It has the potential to transform clinical trials, change who can do research and development, and lead to the creation of new targeted treatments for cancer patients. The potential is vast. We will be able to understand mutations and when things go wrong in DNA, and importantly, whether that transpires into what clinicians see in medical imaging. We can also expose data to AI in new ways. Working with Sectra in an innovative way is an important part of our initiative. The imaging system is already a very recognizable interface in NHS clinical settings, but we are using it in new ways. It will help us harness imaging that we can then match to our genomic data, while de-identifying data to ensure confidentiality. The resulting multimodal dataset will enable important research and support a safe and secure but accessible cloud-based research environment. That means many more people than bioinformaticians will be able to harness genomic, pathology and radiology data.
    Dr Prabhu Arumugam, Director of Clinical Data and Imaging, and Caldicott Guardian for Genomics England.
    This is an inspirational initiative that could help to change our understanding of cancers and other illnesses. We have been working with the NHS for decades to deliver digital maturity to diagnostic environments including radiology and pathology. This project makes greater use of that work, with exciting possibilities for research that could be immense. I eagerly look forward to seeing research emerge, and from that the potential for life-changing and life-saving treatments for patients.
    Jane Rendall, Managing Director of Sectra UK and Ireland.
    The secure exchange of information between and within authorities, without the risk of eavesdropping, has never been more important.

    Sectra’s financial targets and strategic ambitions remain unchanged. The need for greater productivity in healthcare and for cybersecurity is more important than ever. Within the medical area, consolidation and cybersecurity are driving a move to the cloud, and we are in the process of transitioning to service sales and cloud-based deliveries. Although this transition will have a short-term dampening effect on our financial growth, it will benefit us and our customers over the long term. Within the area of cybersecurity, the situation in Europe and the need for secure data, within mobile applications in particular, are strong factors for our future growth. The challenges many healthcare providers are facing today pertain to increased workloads and constrained budgets and resources. Cost containments, preventing staff burnout and cybersecurity concerns are growing in importance. Therefore, having fewer but more effective IT systems, such as for imaging, across several hospitals and/or across different image types and diagnostic specialties is crucial. Our prediction is that enterprise imaging with all medical images in one solution, creating a ‘pixel EMR,’ is what customers will strive for in the future.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO, Sectra AB.
    Access to resources when and where they are needed is increasingly becoming a challenge.
