Healthcare Providers Rate Sectra the #1 Global PACS Vendor

LINKÖPING, Sweden--()--IT and medical technology company Sectra (STO:SECTB) has received the highest honors for its PACS according to the 2015/2016 Best in KLAS: Software and Services report. Sectra received the 2015/2016 Best in KLAS award for Global (Non-US) PACS as well as 2015/2016 Category Leader for Global (Non-US) PACS Europe. Last week, Sectra also received the 2015/2016 Best in KLAS award for PACS in the US.

“To me, winning both the Global and the US awards for customer satisfaction proves that our consistent strategy to develop medical IT solutions that really make a difference to our customers’ daily work is paying off,” says Marie Ekström Trägårdh, President Sectra Imaging IT Solutions.

The 2015/2016 Best in KLAS Global (Non-US) PACS award is based on surveys of PACS users in hospitals worldwide. The Global (Non-US) PACS recognition has been presented twice and Sectra has won the award both times. In the US, Sectra has won Best in KLAS for PACS for three consecutive years.

“Sectra truly listens to their customers, and that results in innovation and continued training to ensure the product is well maintained and high performing. Over the last few years, the other vendors in this category have failed to react to industry needs and be innovative,” comments a Hospital Manager on the KLAS website, (refer to: http://data.klasresearch.com/products/comments/1816).

Sectra has been developing IT solutions for healthcare imaging for more than 20 years. The first Sectra PACS was installed in Sweden and today, it is used by healthcare providers throughout the world who manage over 70 million radiology examinations annually.
