Faroese hospital chooses Sectra PACS

22 November 2006

The hospital in the Faeroe Islands has chosen Swedish company Sectra to provide a digital picture archiving and communications system (PACS) for managing medical images and a radiology information system (RIS) for managing patient information. The order value amounts to approximately DKK 6 million.

"We chose Sectra for their explicit focus on providing customers excellent service and support," said J├│gvan Dahl Niclaesen at the hospital at the Faeroe Islands. "Sectra has a professional and experienced organization and its system is easy to learn, deploy and maintain and that is crucial for a hospital located on a distant island."

Implementation of a total solution for digital handling of radiology images with tight integration between RIS and PACS, helps optimize the workflow within, to and from the radiology department. This contributes to more efficient and improved patient care. Digitization facilitates the exchange of information between hospitals and that will be of major benefit for the hospital in the Faeroe Islands.

"This order shows that customers with special demands on stability and service put trust in our well-proven total solution," says Jens Kring, Sales Manager at Sectra A/S. We look forward to help the hospital in the Faeroe Islands to maximize the benefit of digital radiology operations," he continues.
