Image Central for multi-discipline image management

Sectra launched a solution for efficient management of all medical imaging across departments throughout the entire enterprise, from radiology to the hospital photographer.

 Access to clinical data from different medical disciplines at an enterprise level is vital to achieve efficient workflows across departments.

Sectra’s solution, Image Central, provides fast and safe access to all clinical images and video clips in any department of the hospital enterprise. This improves patient care by ensuring that all relevant images are accessible when needed, regardless of format and where in the enterprise they were generated.

The solution cuts cost by providing a single, central system for image management, accessible to all authorized personnel from in from any computer. Patient integrity is ensured through proven authentication, logging and access control.

“Until now, we haven't had a satisfactory solution for safe storage and distribution of non-radiology images,” says Ante Grubbström, CIO at Sörmland County Council in Sweden, pilot customer for Sectra Image Central. “After using Image Central successfully in a number of pilot departments, we have decided to introduce the solution to all healthcare units throughout the County Council area. I expect considerable interest particularly from primary care, since images make a valuable contribution when consulting specialists or other colleagues.”

Sectra Image Central will be showcased at ECR in Vienna, March 4th – 7th. Visit us in Foyer D, Booth #406.
