Gesundheit Nordhessen hospital group invests in Sectra imaging solution

The German hospital group Gesundheit Nordhessen is investing in a medical IT solution from Sectra (STO: SECT B) for handling radiology images as well as non-radiology images across the group´s four hospitals, the company said.

Sectra´s enterprise imaging solution (PACS and VNA) will improve the availability and simplify the communication of patient images making it easier for radiologists and other physicians to carry out their daily work, and contributing to more efficient care. In addition, using one single system for image handling across several hospitals and multiple departments enhances efficiency for the IT department.

Gesundheit Nordhessen Holding AG is a regional healthcare group and includes four hospitals as well as rehabilitation centers and senior residences. The hospital group is a regional market leader for acute care and the group offers health services for over 73,000 inpatients and 200,000 out-patients annually.

Sectra VNA and Sectra PACS for radiology, as purchased by Gesundheit Nordhessen, are key components of Sectra´s enterprise image management offering and allow consolidation of image handling, while ensuring clinical workflow efficiency in radiology. More than 1,700 hospitals, clinics and imaging centers worldwide use Sectra´s systems daily.
