Sectra inks contract with Kent and Medway Medical Imaging Consortium

Sectra AB, a leading medical imaging tech company, has reportedly inked an agreement with Kent and Medway Medical Imaging Consortium.

The new contract will help a group of trusts provide faster diagnoses, deliver community diagnostics, and improve capacity. It is expected to also offer benefits from using the same imaging systems trusted by many across major parts of South East England.

According to Sue Lang, radiology transformation program manager at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust, the new system will enable instant availability of important diagnostic images across the trusts to caregivers and diagnostic reporters.

Lang added that the system will support enhanced access to imaging across major parts of South East England where many healthcare institutions use the Sectra PACS.

It is crucial to provide easy access and shareability of medical imaging across healthcare institutions as it can accompany patients along their care journey. This becomes helpful in the case of cancer patients who frequently shift to specialist centers.

Radiologists and clinicians at Medway NHS Foundation Trust, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, and East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust will be able to seamlessly access images like CT scans, x-rays, ultrasounds, MRIs, and others irrespective of the patient capturing the medical imaging within the consortium.

Patients can now expect insightful and timely diagnoses and clinical outcomes due to enhanced access to imaging. Trusts across the regions can pool their resources and stabilize the workload of scarce specialists and radiologists.

Better accessibility and discoverability of images will also result in improved patient safety by preventing patients from unnecessary radiation exposure and duplicate scans.

Sectra’s radiology module will be implemented across the trusts along with its vendor-neutral archive.

Apart from the initial focus on medical photography and radiology, Sectra's enterprise imaging solution offers the potential to diversify the program to other diagnostic disciplines like digital pathology.
