Sectra, an international medical technology company, has come to a multi-year agreement with Suffolk MRI, Smithtown, NY. Under the agreement, Sectra will deliver its Web-based RIS, which will be integrated to Suffolk MRI’s existing Sectra PACS in an effort to increase radiology workflow efficiencies and patient throughput.

Sectra’s RIS/PACS with embedded voice recognition will enable Suffolk MRI to reduce report turnaround time, as well as paper and manual processes. Sectra will develop a bi-directional interface from its RIS to Suffolk MRI’s billing system. Additionally, as part of the implementation process, Sectra will migrate seven years of data from the PACS into the RIS.
