Sectra Wins Best in KLAS Award for Acute Care PACS
LINKÖPING, Sweden --(Business Wire)--
The medical imaging IT company Sectra (http://www.sectra.com/medical/)
(STO:SECTB) announced that its acute care PACS has been awarded "Best in
KLAS" by the research firm with the same name in the "2013 Best in KLAS:
Software and Services" report. The initial version of Sectra PACS was
installed more than 20 years ago and is now responsible for managing
over 70 million annual radiology examinations worldwide.
"We believe that our KLAS scores are representative of an ongoing
initiative to increase customer satisfaction. By becoming more
systematic in seeking client feedback, as well as making special efforts
in understanding the needs of our customer's customer, referring
physicians, we have significantly raised the responsiveness of our
support services and improved the overall user experience. The products
we have released in the past year are also reflective of our customers'
requirements for effectiveness and innovation," says Sectra North
American President, Mikael Anden.
A large hospital PACS Manager commented to KLAS in December, 2013, "The
latest version of Sectra PACS is the most stable yet. It does a great
job of handling large image sets. Visiting radiologists prefer Sectra
PACS over what they have at their home hospitals."
Sectra PACS provides radiologists the ability to perform their work
smoothly and efficiently in a data-intense environment. It is designed
to enhance communication and collaboration between the radiology
department and its referring physicians, thereby improving diagnostic
quality and minimizing report turnaround times.
