Sectra Highlights How to Handle Security Vulnerabilities in Medical Imaging at RSNA 2018
At RSNA 2018, international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra will demonstrate how healthcare providers can boost radiology reading and reporting efficiency without compromising patient integrity
“Recent reports from the US Department of Homeland Security have shown critical vulnerabilities in the imaging IT solutions of a number of established vendors. This is a serious threat to patient integrity, security and efficiency of care. In addition to medical imaging, Sectra‘s operating area Secure Communication has more than 30 years’ experience, and today protects many European countries’ most sensitive information at the highest security levels. This level of knowledge in security issues is a great asset when designing, deploying and upgrading our medical imaging IT solutions. Even though no IT system is ever 100% secure, a knowledgeable vendor can improve IT security tremendously. And nowadays, hospitals are prime targets for organized cybercrime,” says Torbjörn Kronander, CEO and President of Sectra AB.
Visitors at RSNA can learn about Sectra’s enterprise imaging portfolio, which has Sectra VNA and Best-in-KLAS awarded PACS at its core. The scalable and comprehensive solution streamlines the entire radiology (or pathology, cardiology) workflow. It integrates seamlessly with surrounding IT solutions-such as the EMR, RIS, and VNA-to provide access to the complete patient record whenever and wherever needed. It lets radiologists perform all everyday tasks from a single diagnostic application. Visit Sectra in booth #6113 to experience how security by design supports efficient workflows without compromising patient integrity.
