International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra has signed a contract with Boston Medical Center (BMC) for enterprise imaging as a subscription (Sectra One). The solution has the capability of supporting all current and future imaging needs through a common platform with advanced diagnostic and clinical tools, integrated with Epic.

The contract, signed in September 2022, includes modules for radiology, breast imaging, and orthopaedics. Additionally, the Sectra VNA will archive all radiology images within the health system and enable future enterprise image storage across other specialties.  

“We are excited to begin this new partnership between Sectra and Boston Medical Center,” says Eric Podradchik, senior director, electronic health records at BMC. “Moving to Sectra will offer our radiologists immediate opportunities for efficiency and productivity improvements that only come with a first class PACS solution. Beyond that, Sectra PACS & VNA will provide the backbone of an enterprise imaging strategy at Boston Medical Center. This goal will improve our providers’ ability to care for our underserved patient population by providing a consistent reading platform and access to all images across different physician specialties throughout BMC.”

“Sectra will enhance BMC’s physician workflow by providing its radiologists with a multi-modality enterprise overview and its orthopedic surgeons the ability to do 2D and 3D pre-operative planning,” says Isaac Zaworski, president of Sectra, Inc.

The enterprise imaging solution provides a unified strategy for all imaging needs while lowering operational costs. The scalable and modular solution, with a VNA at its core, allows healthcare providers to grow from ology to ology and from enterprise to enterprise.
