Dutch hospital expands its use of Sectras solution from radiology to enterprise imaging


International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity companySectra has signed an enterprise imaging contract with the Dutch hospital Alrijne Zorggroep. The contract is an expansion of an existing agreement and will initially broaden the use of the imaging solutions currently used in radiology to include cardiology. Alrijne has the possibility to further expand its use of the solution to include all medical imaging across the enterprise. Consolidating image management across Alrijne Zorggroep will reduce IT complexity and enable efficient cross-discipline collaboration around patients.

“We have used Sectra’s solution for many years in radiology. It’s an intuitive solution with high availability that helps our radiologists to efficiently deliver high-quality care. Sectra has proven to be a partner that listens to its customers and clearly wants to meet both current and future needs. This was important in our decision to move beyond radiology and make Sectra our enterprise imaging partner,” says Richard de Wit, Infrastructure and Automatization Manager at Alrijne Zorggroep.

The contract was signed in April 2021 and includes an expansion of the use of the enterprise archive (VNA) and universal viewer to store and access cardiology information. Alrijne Zorggroep has been a Sectra customer since 2007.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to support Alrijne as they now gradually realize their centralized image management strategy to support their vision of continuously improving patient care. The trust they have shown in us by expanding our partnership is a recognition of Sectra’s dedication to customer success, which makes me proud,” says Peter Osinga, Manager at Sectra in the Netherlands.

Sectra’s enterprise imaging solution provides a unified strategy for all imaging needs while lowering operational costs. The scalable and modular solution, with a VNA at its core, allows healthcare providers to grow from ology to ology and from enterprise to enterprise. Sectra’s cardiology imaging module is currently available in limited markets. Read more about Sectra and why it’s top-ranked in “Best in KLAS”.
