Sectra AB (Sectra), a developer and seller of secure mobile communication systems and encryption for telecom and data lines, has been selected by Shields Health Care Group (Shields Health) as their radiology information system (RIS) provider. Sectra will deliver its RIS products, integration services and direct support to Shields Health Care over a multi-year period.
“As part of a continuing effort to be the imaging provider in the New England market, Shields senior management developed an optimization strategy for the operation of all of our imaging centers,” indicated Patricia Whelan, vice president of information technologies at Shields Health.
“At the core of this strategy is a new Sectra RIS that will help us to reengineer our workflow through work simplification and elimination and advance our product through the development of a multi-media report. Sectra RIS will enable us to communicate securely with the patients and referring physician in new ways that were not possible just a few years ago.”
“Shields Health Care exemplifies the technology savvy, patient-focused radiology organization that drives innovation in our industry,” indicated Dr. John Goble, president of Sectra North America. “Sectra will work closely with Shields Health Care to enable their customer-focused model of healthcare, while increasing their operational efficiencies, a necessity in this tough economic climate.”
