SHELTON, Connecticut, September 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

International medical technology company,  Sectra    (NASDAQ OMX Stockholm: SECT B) , announces an agreement with four healthcare providers to deploy its PACS in their 17 outpatient imaging centers located throughout the Kitsap Peninsula. This solution will allow the imaging centers access to all relevant patient images and information through a data center hosted by Harrison Medical Center, an existing Sectra PACS customer.

"This agreement provides a single, standard platform from which to securely share radiological images, such as CT scans and x-rays, among our local medical community. It is a necessary element to further our mission of providing exceptional patient care throughout the peninsula," says Adar Palis, executive vice president and chief administrative officer (CAO) for Harrison.

This strategic configuration between Harrison Medical Center, Advanced Medical Imaging, Olympic Radiology Associates, and The Doctors Clinic, allows each organization to have access to necessary patient information, through a virtual database, regardless of where it originated.  The centralized archive will greatly reduce the IT cost infrastructure for the providers and improve the continuum of care in the region.

"We believe this regionalization of PACS is the future of imaging.  Cooperation between entities resulting in a reduced cost per exam will help to ensure the financial success of these providers" says Mikael Anden, president of Sectra in North America.
