Sectra to bring RIS/PACS to Nashville General Hospital at Meharry
Sectra, the healthcare IT system developer based in Linköping, Sweden, has reached a multi-year agreement to bring its RIS/PACS suite to Nashville General Hospital at Meharry in Nashville, Tenn.

Sectra’s RIS/PACS with embedded speech recognition will allow Nashville General Hospital at Meharry’s medical staff and remote referring physicians to access reports and images online, and review reports with embedded images. Additionally, online image access will facilitate medical staff training with affiliated medical schools.

As part of the implementation process, Sectra will develop bi-directional interfaces from its RIS/PACS system to the hospital information, order management, billing, electronic medical record and lab systems, as well as a data migration of up to 170,000 patient records.
