    Sectra launches vendor-neutral integration for machine learning applications—speeds up access to new technology in healthcare

    Medical Systems

    There are many modern machine learning algorithms that could bring great benefits to diagnostic work, but very few solutions have yet reached clinical routine. A main limitation has been the lack of an effective multi-vendor ecosystem for radiologists to use through a single, unified workplace. The Sectra platform is the missing piece, a solid vendor-neutral foundation.

    Sectra’s three-month interim report 2017/2018: Growth and increased operating profit

    Financial Information

    Sectra’s operating areas continued to develop and the trend for the Group’s financial results was positive. Our Imaging IT Solutions business area got off to a much better start than in the comparative quarter, but we cannot draw any definitive conclusions based on the outcome for a single quarter. Sales in Secure Communications also improved, mainly as a result of development assignments and products for secure communications. Although the business area’s new venture in the area of cybersecurity for critical infrastructure has not yet generated any substantial sales, we have signed a number of strategic orders and are growing in the Nordic energy sector.

    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.

    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.
