    For the past two decades, we have supported orthopaedists and implant manufacturers by providing measurement methods for validating implants and our brand is market leading in terms of quality. Sectra’s CT-based measurement method represents a paradigm shift in this field as it contains clear advantages for patients, surgeons and the implant industry. We are excited about the opportunity to help bring this emerging technology to the market.
    Per Grundström, President and CEO of RSA Biomedical
    RSA Biomedical clearly understands what is needed to bring an orthopaedic implant into clinical practice. Its support of the move toward CT-based measurements represents an important step forward in efforts to make this type of validation the new gold standard. I’m excited about what our collaboration will lead to in terms of increased availability of safer orthopaedic implants and ultimately, improved patient outcomes.
    Gustaf Schwang, General Manager Business Unit Orthopaedic Solutions at Sectra
    Patients can already be treated at any of the hospitals within the Jessa network and the hospitals can share resources such as subspecialists with each other. With Jessa Hospital’s vision of improving healthcare through increased collaboration across healthcare providers and Sectra’s experience of region-wide imaging solutions around the world, the next step toward making collaboration easier and more efficient can be taken.
    Peter Osinga, Managing Director Sectra Benelux
    Possibilities for working remotely with the same functionality and security as the workplace, as well as comprehensive consolidation in healthcare to promote higher productivity, are some of the factors that drive the markets for medical IT and cybersecurity. With increased order bookings and profits in the first half of the year, we have shown that our focus on customer satisfaction is paying off. This is how we grow and achieve our goals.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    By offering integration of whole scanned slides and radiology images on one platform, Sectra represents a huge step forward in patient care.
    Dr. Agnes Loeffler, Department Chair of Pathology at The MetroHealth System
    With digital pathology we equip our pathologists with tools and a workflow that is not possible with microscopes, and that enables us to benefit from new technology. Digital pathology is also a key enabler for meeting the ambitions for shorter lead times defined in the national cancer care pathways. We are very excited to continue our journey toward unified management of our medical images. Adding digital pathology to our existing imaging solution also allows us to benefit from truly integrated diagnostics.
    Professor Lisbet Sviland, Head of Department of Pathology, Helse Bergen
    Over the years, we have been able to expand the Sectra solution from radiology imaging to a region-wide archive for various types of medical images, and we can now add pathology as we digitize the pathology department. Being able to expand this solution has been important to efficiently realizing our enterprise imaging strategy, and I’m excited to be working together with the Sectra team once again.
    Erik M. Hansen, CEO at Helse Vest IKT
    Leeds is the first of our six sites to go fully digital. Collectively, we are modernizing our pathology services to become among the most advanced and interconnected anywhere in the world, and we hope to share our experience to help others across the NHS and beyond.
    Dr. Darren Treanor, NPIC’s director, and a practicing pathologist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
    The days of using glass slides and paper notes to determine and communicate a patient’s diagnosis are numbered. As we move to digital ways of working, we can improve quality and create a more structured digital workflow.
    Dr. Darren Treanor, NPIC’s director, and a practicing pathologist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
    Digital pathology is about far more than replacing microscopes with computers. It’s about fundamentally changing how pathology services can be configured across regions and across the country, so that patients can receive faster diagnoses, services can become more intelligent, and the NHS can make best use of its valuable pathologists. NPIC is at the forefront of this transformation.
    Jane Rendall, UK Managing Director for Sectra
    Pathology trainees from across Australasia take several sets of exams throughout their five years of training. Now, during the ongoing pandemic, these exams are being conducted remotely instead of on campus in Sydney. Regardless of where the exams take place, we need a solid, robust and secure solution that we can rely on during this important and stressful time for trainees. Sectra’s solution is also intuitive and easy to use, requiring minimal training. We feel very confident that our new exam process using Sectra’s solution will better prepare our pathology trainees for their future careers.
    RCPA President, Doctor Michael Dray
    Sectra is committed to making our solutions rock-solid and easy to use, since this is critical in the clinical environment. I’m excited that it is these qualities that grant us the opportunity to be part of training future pathologists for their important job. Sectra believes that digital pathology plays a key role in meeting the challenges in, for example, cancer care. Making our digital pathology solution part of the program for training pathologists is truly inspiring.
    Bart Thielen, President of Sectra Australia and New Zealand
    Radiologists will be able see and discuss how they can gain faster access to the latest innovations to cope with workloads and facilitate a work-life balance. We will also demonstrate how we help meet the needs of healthcare organizations to easily expand their enterprise imaging strategy to ologies beyond radiology.
    Marie Ekström Trägårdh, President of Sectra Imaging IT Solutions
    Increased productivity, access to emerging technologies and scalability are more important than ever in the current situation. Radiology is now facing a huge increase in volumes due to the post-COVID-19 surge. Combined with the industry consolidation taking place among radiology providers, this leads to greater demand to efficiently scale the system as volumes grow.
    Marie Ekström Trägårdh, President of Sectra Imaging IT Solutions
    I am thrilled that we are now live with the solution and can start supporting our patients using a state-of-the-art digital capability. Clinicians will now be able to cooperate efficiently around medical imaging information, enabling them to share workload and expertise. Collaboration between Local Health Districts, eHealth NSW and our industry partner, Sectra, has been excellent throughout the project, and has enabled us to reach this important milestone as planned, in spite of disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
    Dr. Zoran Bolevich, Chief Executive, eHealth NSW, Chief Information Officer, NSW Health
    Going live at these first two local health districts is extremely important. It proves that the solution meets clinical needs and gives us important feedback that we can use to create value for the hospitals and their patients. I am proud of and impressed by everyone in all of the organizations involved who have managed such a comprehensive implementation on schedule and according to plan.
    Bart Thielen, Managing Director of Sectra Australia and New Zealand
    Imaging solutions are a critical component of healthcare IT infrastructure. However, without deep integration in surrounding IT systems and support for a wide range of file formats and standards, the true clinical gains will not be realized. That is why vendor neutrality is so important, and something we strive toward across all our products. Within pathology, we have now taken an important step by pushing vendor neutrality even further. I’m convinced that this will translate into better cancer care as healthcare providers can now choose the most suitable scanner for their specific workflow.
    Elin Kindberg, Global Product Manager of Pathology at Sectra
    We were looking for a solution that could facilitate interactive learning among our students. Now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to also be able to teach remotely and for students to benefit from online learning.
    Dr. Germán Fajardo Dolci, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at UNAM and President of ALAFEM/UDUAL (Asociación Latinoamericana y del Caribe de Facultades y Escuelas de Medicina/Unión de Universidades de América Latina y el Caribe)
    Our students will now have the opportunity to interact with real-life clinical data already during their education, which is a powerful way of learning and preparing for medical practice. With Sectra’s solution, we will also be able to connect our own faculties, campuses, teachers and students in an efficient way, while at the same time become part of a worldwide network sharing cases with each other. We are very proud to provide this state-of-the-art technology to our students.
    Dr. Germán Fajardo Dolci, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at UNAM and President of ALAFEM/UDUAL (Asociación Latinoamericana y del Caribe de Facultades y Escuelas de Medicina/Unión de Universidades de América Latina y el Caribe)
    We are very excited and honored to work together with UNAM to help thousands of students increase their clinical understanding. We see a very strong interest among leading educational institutions to give students hands-on experience of clinical imaging throughout their education as a complement to traditional teaching tools, and we can see that their students really appreciate it.
    Johan Carlegrim, General Manager for Sectra Medical Education
    VUmc already uses Sectra’s solution and we are honored to be the selected vendor as the two hospitals move to a joint solution to facilitate more efficient collaboration and thereby further improve patient care. Amsterdam UMC’s enterprise imaging strategy is a great fit with ours. I look forward to utilizing our full platform to meet their future ambitions, for example, within AI where our vendor-neutral platform for AI applications can accelerate innovation at Amsterdam UMC.
    Peter Osinga, Managing Director for Sectra Benelux
    Our share and collaborate service has a long history of tangibly improving patient care, for example, across the entire network of healthcare providers in the UK. With the service now established here in Australia, I’m excited about the possibilities for improving patient care through efficient, secure and vendor-neutral sharing of images and patient information.
    Bart Thielen, Managing Director of Sectra Australia and New Zealand
    This program for a collaborative approach to imaging in Greater Manchester has required a high degree of cooperation and trust. It will lead to significantly improved outcomes for our patients and significantly improved work-life balance and satisfaction for our staff, as well as productivity and financial benefits that will help us sustain great care going forward.
    Raj Jain, executive senior responsible owner for the program that is managed by the Greater Manchester Provider Federation Board, and who is also chief executive of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (NCA)
    Our vision wasn’t for a PACS system – this is a means to an end. The real vision is about how we want to take forward patient care. Our new approach will enable clinical communities and multi-disciplinary teams to come together around the patient in a way we presently can’t do. The PACS platform is an essential component to taking forward a new model of care in Greater Manchester, allowing digital images to form part of the core patient record and to create a holistic persona for the patient that our clinicians can use much more effectively than we have ever done before.
    Raj Jain, executive senior responsible owner for the program that is managed by the Greater Manchester Provider Federation Board, and who is also chief executive of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group (NCA)
    This agreement represents the culmination of many years of work. A single, unified record will help to avoid delays that come with manually transferring images between individual hospitals. It will help us to reduce variation in waiting times and improve equity in access. For cancer, this will help us to meet our objective to diagnose more patients at an earlier stage to help to save thousands more lives. And the platform itself will make a significant difference to professionals, providing modern tools to report images whilst allowing us to embrace emerging artificial intelligence and to support important programs of research.
    Dr. Rhidian Bramley, a clinical lead for the program and consultant radiologist at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust
    We will have a modern imaging system deployed region wide that will enable us to liberate the geography of patient management, in keeping with how we practice medicine, where patients move from one site to another. In any multidisciplinary setting we can have a more informed meaningful discussion about a patient. And if they present out of hours, we don’t need to wait until the office opens in the morning to access their imaging. New capabilities mean we can think more openly about delivering care for patients at sites convenient for them. And it will allow us to quickly access second opinions from colleagues across Greater Manchester whilst having greater access to peer review, and being able to make far more of the human resource available to us within the NHS.
    Dr. Rizwan Malik, a clinical lead for the program and interim divisional medical director at The Royal Bolton Hospital
    This is not about a new system for radiology. The test will be making sure that an emergency department doctor can quickly access imaging to inform an important decision, or that a consultant can use imaging to determine in minutes if a patient has had a stroke. It’s about more than hospitals too – with community access also important. And whether its COVID-19 or other emergencies – this should put Greater Manchester in a stronger position to respond.
    Ray Timmins, the systems lead for the initiative
    With other programs on pause during the COVID-19 pandemic, this procurement has advanced at pace and will be crucial in enabling hospitals to meet diagnostic demands. The new platform will take us to a place where we can really transform services, where clinicians can work across organizational boundaries, where we can reduce outsourcing, and where patients might get scanned in their locality but get reported by a professional on the other side of Manchester.
    Chris Sleight, the program’s director
    State-of-the-art technology will give the Greater Manchester region a springboard to catch up and overtake what colleagues have done in other parts of the country. We have an aggressive implementation plan to get the benefits to everyone in the shortest possible timescale. This will allow us to reduce mortality and morbidity through faster diagnosis and reduce the need for patients to attend multiple hospitals and face repeat scanning. And in choosing Sectra we have a collaborative partner that shares our vision and that will help us to drive forward our ambitions.
    Chris Sleight, the program’s director
    Working with the NHS in Greater Manchester is one of the most exciting things we have ever done – not just because of the size and complexity of the initiative – but because of the ambition. This is about changing pathways and the diagnostic process so that outcomes are likely to be more successful for patients. This is not just an opportunity to deliver a clinical system but to make a difference by working in partnership with Greater Manchester as a social and health body that is improving prevention, treatment and diagnostics for patients.
    Jane Rendall, Managing Director UK and Ireland at Sectra
    I am extremely proud that two health systems listed in the 2020-2021 US News & World Report Best Hospital rankings, chose to develop an enterprise imaging strategy by implementing a Sectra solution.
    Anthony Grise, Vice President of Sales at Sectra, Inc
    Our customers need to be able to process sensitive information beyond the walls of their offices. This spring, it was very clear that society's critical organizations need tools and infrastructure to efficiently work remotely so that they can perform their everyday work tasks even in a crisis. They need a VPN that is even more secure compared to what is normally used today, and Sectra’s mobile VPN at layer 4 of the OSI model fills an important function here.
    Simo Pykälistö, President of Sectra Communications
    Recent customer satisfaction surveys conducted in the US established that Sectra has performed well during the pandemic, further increasing the already-high levels of customer satisfaction. This shows that our corporate culture is strong and that we have fantastic employees. With satisfied customers, a strong balance sheet, a positive cash position and significant recurring revenue, we are relatively well equipped to manage the high level of uncertainty in the world.
    Torbjörn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra AB
    he security policy situation has worsened in recent years, and foreign powers are working actively on recording and collecting data concerning sensitive operations. Sweden’s capacity for secure communication is therefore of crucial importance, and this order confirms that we are playing an important role in its maintenance and further development.
    Simo Pykälistö, President of Sectra Communications
    I’m excited to join Sectra and to contribute to the culture of collaboration, innovation and customer success that Sectra has fostered for over 30 years in the medical imaging industry.
    Nader Soltani, President of Sectra Canada
    I am pleased to welcome Nader to Sectra. His background and knowledge will be a great asset to our Canadian customers who ranked us #1 in KLAS for customer satisfaction in 2020. I would like to thank Kjetil for his successful tenure and strong leadership of the Canadian organization.
    Marie Ekström Trägårdh, President of Sectra Imaging IT Solutions
    It is vital for us to be able to communicate securely. The Tiger system offered by Sectra is a proven and reliable solution in use by our organization for several years. It supports us in sharing information in a secure and efficient manner.
    Senior representative from the European External Action Service
    I welcome Michigan Medicine as a Sectra customer. Our experience with academic medical centers and successful track record with large-scale deployments and deep EMR integration makes for a perfect fit between the two organizations. I look forward to a collaborative relationship between our respective teams.
    Anthony Grise, Vice President of Sales at Sectra, Inc
    Moving to Sectra’s VNA will be a big win. We will be able to administer, store and make available millions of images, of different types and from different disciplines, from hospitals across our region, all in a single place without the burden of having to manage infrastructure.
    Mark Gardner, PACS manager at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust
    Linking with other regions is an important next step. Our strategy is to improve our visualization of the whole patient pathway within SWASH and beyond. Using a standard for cross-community sharing will help us to better connect with other regional consortia. That will be a game changer – to not just see local imaging, but to understand imaging has occurred for patients who move across borders and services, and to be able to access that imaging myself as a clinician, without needing to ask someone else who might not be in the office at the time.
    Dr. Mark Griffiths, paediatric radiologist and clinical lead for the SWASH consortium
    This creates a wealth of data for purposes such as AI. Data for training algorithms needs to be appropriate and validated – and we won’t simply be throwing data at AI, but by having collective data source as a consortia, we can use our size to help with the validation and governance around using AI. And we anticipate that Sectra will provide multiple inputs from smaller AI suppliers, that will make it much easier for NHS trusts within a consortia to utilize them.
    Dr. Mark Griffiths, paediatric radiologist and clinical lead for the SWASH consortium
    SWASH is one of our longest standing partners, and we are proud to continue to provide the tools to advance their imaging strategies that are ultimately focussed on delivering better patient outcomes. Work here is genuinely world class as a demonstrative example of exceptional regional collaboration in diagnostics.
    Jane Rendall, Managing Director UK and Ireland at Sectra
    It was important for us to choose a solution that has a track record of high system availability and has been proven to work for full-scale primary diagnostics handling large volumes and incorporating AI innovations.
    Dr Liat Aple-Sarid, Chief Medical Manager, Pathology Lab at Assuta Medical Center
    Sectra’s solution will optimize our workflows through state-of-the-art clinical tools and AI innovations. It will support us in delivering the best possible cancer care, and expand the services we provide to clinicians and patients.
    Dr. Asaf Gertler at Hadassah Medical Center
    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.
