The University of Michigan health system in Ann Arbor has partnered with Sectra, an international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company, to install its enterprise imaging solution throughout the system.
Sectra’s imaging solution includes a VNA, which stores medical images in a standard format and interface so all health care professionals can access them. It also supports work-sharing, subspecialty interpretation of studies acquired at any location within the system, and remote reading.
The scalable and modular solution has modules for radiology, orthopedics, and full-scale digital pathology, which received FDA approval in the U.S. in March 2020, that will ensure system availability and provide a full patient overview to the care team.
“I welcome Michigan Medicine as a Sectra customer,” says Anthony Grise, vice president of sales at Sectra. “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.”
With more than 30 years in business and approaching 2,000 installations worldwide, Sectra is a global provider of imaging IT solutions that support health care in achieving patient-centric care. It has a number of partnerships, including distribution partners, research partners, and clinical solution partners.
Sectra was founded in 1978 and is headquartered in Sweden. It has U.S. locations in Connecticut, Illinois, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
