Sectra launches next-generation cloud portal to enhance clinical learning in medical education


August 17, 2022 — Global medical imaging and cybersecurity company Sectra has launched a new generation of its cloud-based education platform Sectra Education Portal. It will dramatically improve student learning outside of the classroom with significant improvements in usability and functionality. In line with Sectra’s overall commitment to providing cloud-based software, it will enable the hundreds of medical schools using the platform to bridge the gap between education and professional careers for their students.

“We want to empower students to get as close as possible to their future reality and at the same time help teachers manage education effectively in a landscape where we envision an explosive increase in medical knowledge. Educators and students will now be able to access Sectra’s unique visualization tools and clinical learning materials via an all-new cloud-based web portal to further support this goal,” said Johan Carlegrim, Business Unit President. Medical Education from Sectra.

A growing need for care as well as a rapid increase in medical knowledge create challenges when it comes to training healthcare personnel effectively. Managing these challenges requires new ways of working and new tools in medical education. The digital tools and real patient cases of the Sectra Education portal help to create a bridge between education and healthcare. When students can realistically interact with patient cases, it creates a deeper understanding and insight into anatomy as well as body functions and processes. This enhances the learning process and helps students develop their analytical and problem-solving skills.

The award-winning “Best in KLAS” Sectra PACS powers the teaching platform to enable rapid rendering of 3D images and provides a realistic learning experience using the tools used in real clinical practice. The next generation of Sectra Education Portal has been developed to help students navigate and explore from their own devices, no matter where they study, as well as to help teachers prepare their lessons. This makes it easier for universities to expand usage to large numbers of faculty and students. As the platform is cloud-based, users have access to new clinical features and tools from anywhere and as they become available.

The next generation of Sectra Education Portal will be available to customers in fall 2022.

The Sectra Education Portal is a subscription-based software-as-a-service solution that delivers visualization tools and content to college, home, or hospital. The portal includes a large number of anonymized medical cases and images that have been collected in collaboration with Sectra customers. It includes anatomy, histopathology, radiology, traumatology, orthopedics, oncology, surgery, and other specialties. Teachers can also choose to import and use their own content, allowing them to customize their lessons. The platform is provided by Sectra’s Medical Education business unit and is used by educational institutions and hospitals in over 60 countries around the world. The number of unique users increased by almost 40% between 2020 and 2021 and the number of cloud service subscribers increased by 21% in fiscal year 2021/22.
