    Sectra highlights how to handle security vulnerabilities in medical imaging at RSNA 2018

    Medical Systems

    Recent reports from the US Department of Homeland Security have shown critical vulnerabilities in the imaging IT solutions of a number of established vendors. This is a serious threat to patient integrity, security and efficiency of care. In addition to medical imaging, Sectra’s operating area Secure Communication has more than 30 years’ experience, and today protects many European countries’ most sensitive information at the highest security levels. This level of knowledge in security issues is a great asset when designing, deploying and upgrading our medical imaging IT solutions. Even though no IT system is ever 100% secure, a knowledgeable vendor can improve IT security tremendously. And nowadays, hospitals are prime targets for organized cybercrime.

    US Regional Health selects Sectra as its enterprise PACS vendor

    Medical Systems

    Nearly one year ago, Regional Health launched Epic, an electronic medical record system, but soon realized we needed to replace our outdated PACS with similarly matched, state of the art technology that could carry us into the future. Sectra was the vendor we determined would be our best partner. We are committed to making a difference every day, and advanced technologies in the hands of our skilled providers is one way we will do that.

    Sectra’s three-month interim report 2018/2019: US success contributes to increased order bookings

    Financial Information

    The trend with respect to order bookings and sales remained positive. The order book is healthy, and all operating areas reported an increase in sales. We are also benefiting from exchange-rate movements compared with the corresponding quarter in the preceding year, which has impacted our financial items. We intensified our focus on North America and on new product areas and geographic markets. The cost for this work was charged to earnings but is ultimately expected to generate a positive return. Cash flow was burdened by the signing of several major agreements with customers in Imaging IT Solutions and Secure Communications over the past year, which are initially generating more expenditures than income.

    For a company such as Sectra, which competes with some of the largest companies in the world, it is extremely important to have satisfied, long-standing customers.

    By digitizing pathology, we will enable a closer collaboration between pathologists as well as with other departments, thereby increasing efficiency in cancer care. For example, it will make the preparation of multidisciplinary team meetings easier as well as the actual meetings. In addition, Sectra’s vendor-neutral solution lets us use different scanners from various vendors depending on which is most suitable for a certain type of pathology image. This will be very important for us moving forward.
