December 5, 2016 — Sectra announced that nonprofit healthcare system ProMedica is adding the Sectra Cardiology Module into its existing enterprise imaging architecture. Through integration with the Epic Cupid reporting module, physicians will have combined access to their patients’ complete imaging history for both radiology and cardiology.

ProMedica’s 12 hospitals and six ambulatory surgery centers in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan provide 4.7 million patient encounters annually. All the facilities utilize Sectra PACS (picture archiving and communication system) and, earlier this year, the Sectra VNA (vendor neutral archive) architecture was configured to prepare for the inclusion of cardiology and other non-radiology images. Cardiac catherization and cardiac ultrasound images will be viewed in the Sectra PACS and archived in the Sectra VNA.

“ProMedica and Sectra have a long history of collaboration. The ability to easily access images from both radiology and cardiology will allow us to continue delivering excellent patient care and improve communication between disciplines,” said Debi Brobst, VP of applications at ProMedica.

The image shows how the AI software automatically reviews an echocardiogram, completes an automated left ventricular ejection fraction quantification and then presents the data side by side with the original cardiology report. The goal of the software is to augment clinicians and cardiologists by helping them speed workflow, act as a second set of eyes and aid clinical decision support.
