LINK PING, Sweden, Jan. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra(STO: SECT B) has signed a contract with the organization Pathology Projects (SPP) in the Netherlands to offer all 50 pathology labs in the country to connect to a shared telepathology solution. Sectra's cloud-based image-sharing solution will enable pathologists to efficiently share digital pathology images on a national scale. This is the first pathology project of its kind in the world.
With the solution for efficient sharing of images, pathologists will be able to easily consult with other pathologists throughout the country or to ask for second opinions. The solution also makes a patient's previous images easily available, regardless of where the study was carried out. In addition, the solution makes information readily available for panel discussions and supports their execution. All in all, the nationwide telepathology solution could greatly improve cancer care in the Netherlands.
The telepathology project was initiated by the Dutch Society of Pathologists (NVVP) and the nationwide network, Stichting PALGA. The project will be implemented by Sectra, together with the subcontractors Deutsche Telecom Healthcare Solutions and RAM IT. The Pathology Image Exchange solution is based upon a SaaS (Software as a Service) model. Pathology labs which choose to participate will be connected in the coming years.
"Implementing a pathology solution on this scale requires integration between several different IT solutions throughout the 50 labs. Sectra's philosophy and proven track record of implementing standard-based integration is a core strength for us, which makes me extra proud to be part of this unique project," says Dr. Torbjorn Kronander, President and CEO of Sectra.

CIOs and Their Teams Now Have The Transparency and Automated Billing Needed to Change the Conversation on IT Cost, Value and Consumption
BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Apptio, Inc. , the leading provider of cloud-based Technology Business Management (TBM) software, today introduced the next generation of its Bill of IT application. With it, IT leaders can now showcase the services provided to their business partners and demonstrate their value across both traditional and cloud-only environments. By reliably automating IT cost showback and chargeback activities, Apptio's Bill of IT creates defensible, transparent and easy to understand bills for their business partners. Armed with this information, IT leaders are empowered to influence how the business consumes technology and divert funds to strategic digital initiatives that impact the bottom line.
According to a recent Forrester report, How To Allocate And Charge Back Your Business Tech Expenses Without Screwing Up: "Get cost allocation right, and you can provide business leaders with insight into the tech spending that runs their business activities and the ability to influence its magnitude and direction at low cost." In the new world of IT led by the cloud, IT's ability to both provide and broker services to their business partners at fair and transparent rates and provide choices is essential to their success.
Powered by the data from Apptio's Cost Transparency application, Bill of IT automates the creation and delivery of invoices for IT services. This next generation application now leverages the industry standard ATUM cost model, provides IT with the ability to set rates and prices for the services they deliver and delivers a configurable email "bill" to the business. Combined, these features help IT leaders drive consumption behavior by showcasing current, true costs alongside more efficient or cost effective options. The process allows for more informed fact-based discussions around IT costs between technology leaders and their business counterparts often resulting in identification of areas of efficiency or cost savings. Bill of IT users can either communicate the impact of IT support to the business via showback or automate the recovery of costs and fund budgets through chargeback.
"In many enterprise organizations, IT leaders provide their business partners with a monthly 'bill' accounting for the IT services used by each business unit. Lacking detailed transparency or defensible allocations, these bills often serve as a source of tension," said Ted Kummert, Apptio EVP of Engineering. "Apptio's new Bill of IT application solves this problem by creating a detailed, customized bill allowing IT and their partners to confidently collaborate on spending decisions."
