The hospitals will complement their use of microscopes with a digital solution, allowing the pathologists to review and collaborate around cases in a way that has not been possible before. The digital workflow provides instant and, if needed, remote access to digital images of tissue samples instead of relying on physical glass slides reviewed in microscopes.
The Hospital Center of Roubaix is located in the French city of Roubaix, situated on the Belgian border. Given its location, Roubaix is closely connected to a number of Belgian cities including Mouscron, where the Hospital Center of Mouscron is located. Utilizing a joint digital pathology solution to enhance their collaboration will benefit the patients in this region. Together the hospitals perform approximately 25,000 pathology examinations per year.
“Many healthcare providers, regardless of diagnostic specialty, are facing challenges with increased workloads and a lack of resources. Utilizing imaging IT, across hospitals or across diagnostic specialties, is an important piece of the puzzle. I’m looking forward to working with these two healthcare providers who are looking beyond country borders to provide their patients with timely and high-quality diagnostics,” says Fabien Lozach, President of Sectra France.
The contract was signed during the third quarter of Sectra’s 2022/2023 fiscal year.
The pathology solution is part of Sectra’s enterprise imaging solution, which provides a unified strategy for all imaging needs while lowering operational costs. The scalable and modular solution, with a VNA at its core, allows healthcare providers to grow from ology to ology and from enterprise to enterprise.
