    Sectra strengthens presence in Canada

    Medical Systems

    To expand in the Canadian market is part of our long-term growth plan. Canada has some unique healthcare challenges that we are prepared to address with our flexible and intuitive software. Sectra has highly-satisfied customers in Canada, but we still have a relatively small market share. This is something we believe we can improve through increased local presence.

    Sectra’s nine-month interim report 2016/2017: Top ranking in customer satisfaction and performance shows that quality is profitable

    Financial Information

    The US is one of the markets where our largest business area, Imaging IT Solutions, is growing and capturing market shares with its medical IT systems. Over the past three years, the US operations have reported average sales growth in excess of 20% per year. I recently returned from the US, where we once again received the prestigious award of “Best in KLAS” for our top ranking in customer satisfaction. This is the fourth consecutive year that Sectra’s system for managing medical images has received this award in the US, and the third year globally. In my opinion, the fact that we have won this award for so many years in a row is directly attributable to our close cooperation with customers, our strong corporate culture and our outstanding employees.

    Sectra launches extended image sharing solution at ECR—easier sharing with patients and others

    Medical Systems

    We are seeing a growing trend of increased patient engagement. Patients are becoming more keen to have access to their own medical records, for example to be able to have a deeper dialog with their physician or to bring along their medical images for treatment at another hospital. The extended capabilities of our solution will make it easier for healthcare providers to meet that demand, and thus help healthcare to become more inclusive and patient-centered.
