St Marien-Hospital Borken, Germany, signed a five-year agreement with the IT and medical-technology company Sectra to digitize its radiology operation. The order includes Sectra PACS for processing and archiving of digital radiology images, which will be integrated into the hospitals’ RIS and existing IT infrastructure.

The use of an integrated RIS/PACS solution at the hospital in Borken will increase the availability of images and patient information within the hospital thereby improving patient care and enhancing workflow.

St Marien-Hospital performs 75,000 radiology examinations per year and is part of a network of three hospitals, one of which already uses Sectra PACS.
