The Dutch healthcare group Zorggroep Leveste Middenveld, the result of the merger between Scheper Hospital Emmen and Bethesda Hospital Hoogeveen, has selected Sectra as their IT and medical technology partner. The long-term contract with Sectra includes a regional IT solution for managing medical images and patient information. The solution will facilitate a more efficient image-handling workflow throughout the hospitals and enable efficient sharing of resources.

“We see an increased demand for consolidated IT solution,” says Peter Osinga, Manager Director of Sectra Benelux. “Sectra has extensive experience in delivering these types of solutions and Zorggroep Leveste Middenveld is a perfect example for other hospitals that want to consolidate their IT systems.”

Managing and communicating images and information rapidly and efficiently with personnel from other healthcare units is highly significant for the quality of the care provided for the patients. With the medical IT solution from Sectra, it will be easy for the two merged hospitals to share patient information and radiology images with each other. This will facilitate the efficient utilization of resources and will increase the potential for effective and safe healthcare.
