Medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra will deliver the radiology module of its enterprise imaging solution to the University Hospital Basel in Switzerland.
It will be used to improve radiology workflows through enhanced reporting efficiency, which in turn allows for shorter lead times for patients.
A spokesperson for the radiology department at the University Hospital Basel said: “We have a vision of optimising 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.”
The radiologists will now be able to carry out reading and reporting directly in the Sectra solution, from the hospital and remotely.
They will also be able to perform structured reporting close to the images, providing the referring physician with a rich report without switching applications.
Frank Vogelsang, account manager, Sectra DACH, said: “The University Hospital Basel is working towards an integrated diagnostic workflow and use of the latest IT technology to support efficient patient pathways.
“This is a perfect match with Sectra’s strategy of providing one platform for all imaging needs.”
The contract was signed in September 2021.
Sectra was founded in 1978 and has its head office in Linköping, Sweden.
It has direct sales in 19 countries, and operates through partners worldwide.
