First Sites of Australia’s Largest Public Health System Now Live With Enterprise-Wide Radiology Imaging Solution From Sectra
The sites at the first two local health districts in NSW Health Care are now live with international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra’s radiology imaging solution. The goal is to provide a common platform that enables seamless sharing of medical images and related information across Australia’s most populous state. By facilitating secure, easy and immediate access to medical imaging information, the solution will support NSW Health in providing its patients with timely, high-quality care.
“I am thrilled that we are now live with the solution and can start supporting our patients using a state-of-the-art digital capability. Clinicians will now be able to cooperate efficiently around medical imaging information, enabling them to share workload and expertise. Collaboration between Local Health Districts, eHealth NSW and our industry partner, Sectra, has been excellent throughout the project, and has enabled us to reach this important milestone as planned, in spite of disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Dr. Zoran Bolevich, Chief Executive, eHealth NSW, Chief Information Officer, NSW Health.
