Sectra (STO:SECTB) and Norwegian company Curato, the Nordic region’s largest supplier of radiology examinations, have signed a six-year partnership agreement for Sectra’s RIS/PACS products and services. The order value amounts to approximately SEK 100 million.

Under the agreement, Sectra will assume total responsibility for the operation of Curato’s IT systems and supply Sectra RIS/PACS to all 12 of Curato’s radiology clinics. The installation of Sectra’s total solution will enhance the efficiency of the radiology workflow and increase access to images and patient information. Curato and Sectra will also conduct joint research projects aimed at further improving image diagnostics and thereby enhancing quality for the patient.

“Increasingly, customers are seeking a supplier that assumes total responsibility for the installation and operation of all IT systems at their clinics,” says Torbjörn Kronander, President of Sectra Imtec AB. “This agreement confirms our ability to serve as a complete supplier of large-scale and complex IT solutions for the healthcare sector and we are proud to have gained the trust for this assignment from such a competent customer as Curato.”

“The agreement with Sectra will improve our competitiveness in procuring radiology services,” says Hans Olav Almaas, President of Curato AS. “Using Sectra’s systems will make the distribution of radiology images and diagnoses rapid, secure and efficient and enable us to provide even better service to our clients.”
