Linköping, Sweden and Shelton, CT – May 2, 2017 – International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT B) announces that it has signed a multi-year contract with City of Hope to install the Sectra Enterprise Image Management suite of products for display, transmission, and storage of all images throughout the healthcare system. The multi-departmental PACS and VNA solution, integrated with the Epic EMR, will enable physicians access and sharing of images and information across the entire clinical pathway.

City of Hope is one of only forty-seven comprehensive cancer centers in the US, as designated by The National Cancer Institute. Premier care is offered in Los Angeles and Riverside counties through a main campus and fourteen community practice sites. The solution will be used within radiology, cardiology, breast imaging and digital pathology.

“Our focus on cancer care through integrated diagnostics allows for great synergies with City of Hope. We are honored to be working with such a prominent cancer research organization,” says Mikael Anden, president of Sectra North America.

Sectra Enterprise Image Management
Sectra’s complete enterprise imaging offering is modular and supports the most image-intense departments—radiology, pathology, cardiology and orthopaedics. Being built on the same technical platform, customers can easily extend a departmental solution to create a comprehensive VNA and enterprise image management solution without major investments or the replacement of existing components.
