Sectra has signed a five-year agreement for a complete radiology IT solutions with the two-site regional hospital Gelre Ziekenhuizen in the Netherlands. The fully integrated solution will ultimately result in shorter waiting times and more rapid care for patients.
The order includes an upgrade of the customer’s existing system for managing digital radiology images (PACS) as well as service and support. The hospitals also invest in Sectra’s system for efficient handling of patient information (RIS) with fully integrated Speech Recognition. Additionally, Sectra Control Tower, as solution for radiology workflow management, will be implemented to further streamline processes at the hospital’s radiology departments.
“Sectra has proven its ability to provide efficient, future-proof services, and we are confident that by further investing in their integrated RIS/PACS/Speech-solution we will be able to improve our workflow dramatically,” says radiology manager Henk Bronts at Gelre Ziekenhuizen.
Sectra’s solution enhances the efficiency of each step of the care process, from when a physician refers a patient to a radiology examination to when radiology images and responses to referrals are returned. Gelre performs around 225,000 exams per year. The project is to be finalized early 2012.
