Sectra: UK becomes #1 in the world for sharing diagnostic medical images via a common platform from Sectra

Linköping, Sweden, November 18, 2016 - International medical imaging
IT company Sectra (http://www.sectra.com/) (STO: SECT B) announces
that two additional acute hospitals in Wales, UK, have gone live
with Sectra's solution for digital sharing of patient images and
reports between hospitals, Image Exchange Portal (IEP). All acute
hospitals in Wales now have access to Sectra IEP, enabling faster and
more secure image transfer and thus more efficient patient care.

The first acute hospital in Wales went live with Sectra IEP in 2012,
followed by other acute hospitals in the country. The latest two, Cwm
Taf University Health Board and Aneurin Bevan Local Health Board, are
now live as well and are able to share patient images and reports
digitally. There is a total of seven acute hospitals in Wales, taking
care of the country's 3.15 million habitants.

Hospitals using Sectra IEP no longer rely exclusively on burning and
transporting CD's to share radiology images. Sectra IEP is already
used by multiple acute hospitals within Scotland, by the majority of
UK private healthcare providers as well as by all of the English NHS
acute trusts (English National Health Service). The result is more
than 70,000 radiology studies (approximately 20 million images) being
transferred across the UK during an average week.

"The Sectra IEP deployed throughout Wales has significantly improved
the transfer of radiology images. It has facilitated the work of
users of all staff grades, many of whom work outside radiology, to
request and transfer images in a fast and secure way," says Tom
Henderson, PACS Manager at Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.

With more than 20 years of innovation and 1,700 installations, Sectra
is a leading global provider of imaging IT solutions that support
healthcare in achieving patient-centric care. Sectra offers an
Enterprise Image Management solution comprising PACS for
imaging-intense departments (radiology, pathology, cardiology,
orthopaedics), VNA and Cross Enterprise Workflow solutions. For the
third consecutive year in the US and the second consecutive year
globally, Sectra PACS has been awarded 'Best in KLAS' for highest
customer satisfaction.
