Sectra: More efficient collaboration concerning patients when major Norwegian care provider orders region-wide IT solution from Sectra

Linköping - October 25, 2016 - The Norwegian healthcare provider Helse
Vest RHF is investing in a region-wide radiology IT solution from
Sectra (http://www.sectra.com/) (STO: SECT B) for managing radiology
images and patient information. The agreement extends for 6 years and
the order is, over this agreement period, valued at a total of NOK 57
million (corresponding to approximately EUR 5,7 million). Sectra's IT
solution (RIS and PACS) will improve the availability and simplify
the communication of patient images within and between the hospitals
in the region, making it easier for radiologists to carry out their
daily work and contributing to more efficient and higher quality
care. In addition, the solution will help provide greater
opportunities to share resources between hospitals.

"High operational reliability and usability were important criteria in
our choice of radiology solution - criteria that Sectra was able to
meet. It was also crucial that the solution could be integrated with
our existing VNA in order to facilitate joint regional work processes
and efficient, region-wide collaboration and information exchange.
Our hope is that this will contribute to improved quality and higher
productivity in healthcare by providing better access to updated
clinical information," says Erik M. Hansen, CEO of Helse Vest IKT.

Helse Vest already uses Sectra's medical media archive (VNA), where
all of the region's medical images and film sequences, such as
ultrasound and endoscopy examinations, are managed. By combining
Sectra's media archive with this new, region-wide radiology IT
system, Helse Vest will be equipped with a total solution that
provides physicians with simple and secure access to all patient
information and image materials - including non-radiological images -
concerning a specific patient. This facilitates a closer
collaboration between the various medical disciplines involved in the
patient's care chain. Quick and easy access to all patient data
particularly improves multidisciplinary rounds, which are an
important component of cancer care.

Helse Vest is responsible for the care of the approximately one
million people living in the region. Health and medical care is
provided through four care companies at a total of 15 public
hospitals with radiology departments.
