Sectra, an international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company, has signed a PACS contract with the Dutch hospital Zuyderland.

Sectra, an international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company, has signed a PACS contract with the Dutch hospital Zuyderland.

Two hospitals, which have merged to form Zuyderland, have opted to replace their separate IT environments for the purpose of reviewing radiology and nuclear medicine images and consolidate in a single common system from Sectra.

With the enterprise-wide solution in place, physicians at Zuyderland hospital will get a consolidated patient overview regardless of which hospital a patient visited earlier.

Zuyderland Screening & Diagnostics department manager Dirk Jan van Berckel said: “When merging, we of course wanted to consolidate our different IT environments.

“For us, it was important to partner with a vendor with proven high system availability and whose solution would also allow us to increase reading efficiency—in this case, for example, through integrated speech.”

The contract will consist of Sectra’s solutions for reviewing medical images, PACS, and for handling radiology information, RIS.
