IT and medical technology company Sectra has been entrusted with delivering the northernmost PACS in the world. The major Norwegian healthcare region, Helse Nord, is set to use Sectra's solution and the eleven hospitals included in the region will share patient information and radiology images. This will facilitate the efficient use of resources and enhance the quality of care. Helse Nord has signed a four-year agreement with Sectra, with the option of an extension.
The order value amounts to 6.3 million euros. Under the agreement, Sectra will deliver its solution for the management of patient information and digital radiology images (RIS/PACS) and the planning of orthopaedic procedures. The solution will be integrated with other IT systems at the hospitals, including the journal systems.
