Sectra Cloud Services

Enterprise imaging in the cloud

Fully managed, secure and high-performing enterprise imaging as a cloud service. Built on our experience from delivering SaaS to large and small enterprises, designed for your current and future imaging needs.

Health providers are increasingly embracing cloud technology as they search for a more cost-effective, scalable and secure way to store, access and use their vast amounts of medical imaging data. With the benefits of fully managed SaaS, the IT burden on your organization is relieved. Resources can focus on optimizing workflows, rather than on maintenance of IT infrastructure. Sectra’s enterprise imaging portfolio utilizing cloud infrastructure can lower TCO and improve your financial, clinical and operational outcomes by leveraging the scale of the cloud. With a focus on high uptime, performance and security, our solutions can easily scale as your needs change over time. It also removes large up-front investments with a subscription plan and pay-per-usage.

A whole layer of additional management and complication removed, that doesn’t need to involve our busy IT team, which doesn’t specialize in PACS.

AI and cloud computing — a perfect match to drive innovation

Artificial intelligence is gaining momentum by the day. It has tremendous potential to help medical imaging professionals accomplish more by augmenting workflows, reviews and reporting. AI and cloud computing make a perfect match to drive innovation. Regardless if you develop your own algorithms or use ready-to-go AI/ML applications, cloud resources are available on an as-needed basis.

When developing AI, you rely on making large volumes of data accessible — something that scalable cloud storage can enable. And when running algorithms, you often need vast computing power (GPU and CPU) temporarily, which the cloud can offer. With its pay-for-usage model, the cloud removes the need for large CAPEX investments in computing resources you only need temporarily.
