LINKÖPING, Sweden & SHELTON, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--International medical imaging IT company Sectra (http://www.sectra.com/) (STO:SECTB) announces that ProMedica is adding the Sectra Cardiology Module into its existing enterprise imaging architecture. Through integration with the Epic Cupid reporting module, physicians will have combined access to their patients’ complete imaging history for both radiology and cardiology.
ProMedica’s twelve hospitals and six ambulatory surgery centers in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan provide 4.7 million patient encounters annually. All the facilities utilize Sectra PACS and, earlier this year, the Sectra VNA architecture was configured to prepare for the inclusion of cardiology and other non-radiology images. Cardiac catherization and cardiac ultrasound images will be viewed in the Sectra PACS and archived in the Sectra VNA.
“ProMedica and Sectra have a long history of collaboration. The ability to easily access images from both radiology and cardiology will allow us to continue delivering excellent patient care and improve communication between disciplines,” says Debi Brobst, VP of Applications at ProMedica.
