Dutch Hospital Upgrades to Sectra PACS


05/5/2011 4:00PM

Zuwe Hofpoort Ziekenhuis, Woerden has chosen Sectra as its PACS provider. Under a recently signed five-year agreement, the hospital will install Sectra technology with the goal of improving radiology workflows by increasing the availability of images, enhancing performance of large image datasets, and providing additional advanced visualization functionality.

Zuwe Hofpoort Ziekenhuis has leveraged Sectra PACS since 2005 under another brand. Under the new agreement, Sectra will upgrade the existing PACS and provide direct service and support.

“We value Sectra PACS for its intuitive user interface and excellent workflow possibilities. By upgrading to Sectra’s latest generation PACS with the IDS7 workstation, we will further enhance our level of services by enabling radiologists to efficiently read images from home and other remote locations,” said Dr. van der Werff, radiologist at Zuwe Hofpoort Ziekenhuis.

The upgrade will allow intelligent pre-fetching of images, reducing the amount of manual retrievals from archive. This is achieved through brokerless RIS/PACS integration.

“Our long experience in the medical IT field and our close collaboration with customers ensure that our products have the functionality and performance required for carrying out each step in the radiology workflow as efficiently as possible,” said Peter Osinga, managing director of Sectra’s operations in the Benelux-region.
